They tied the knot and became husband and wife no questions asked. All is well then. Well, perhaps not. Each holds a secret that even the binds of matrimony cannot untie. Sonoko does not know that Tetsuo makes sex dolls or Dutch wives. Sonoko has a secret too. She is about to tell Tetsuo what she has been hiding. Their marriage is already sexless. Will they make it?
“This film is personal, a film by a woman that will certainly resonate with women everywhere u0026amp; it feels real. Itu0026#39;s not the grey sludge formula of Hollywood, all fast edits u0026amp; flashy cliches, pre-digested junk food, that leave one feeling none the better. On the contrary, this is observational u0026amp; all the better u0026amp; both fun, funny, more intense, haunting u0026amp; meaningful for that. It will stay with you for a long time afterward.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe writer u0026amp; director, crafted a beautiful, often poetic, comedic tragedy (with the sting removed so that the real pathos is clear but never lachrymose) about love, sex u0026amp; relationships.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film takes a wry, nonjudgmental u0026amp; warm look at the frailties that love brings u0026amp; how women are loved but often nonchalantly (by those who one day may know better, with a few nudges along the way, as this film supplies). If your man takes you for granted, watch this with him.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe tone is tender, sharp, clever u0026amp; everyone is sensitively, insightfully portrayed, beautifully drawn, even when short hand is necessary. Yuki is a great auteur whose future work I canu0026#39;t wait to see. The actors are also really impressive, u0026amp; the lead role of Tasuo is so well portrayed, one flick of his eyes u0026amp; one sees his soul.nBrava Yuki Tanada. Brava.”
