One of Japan’s most prominent filmmakers of romantic dramas, Yukisada Isao (River's Edge, 42nd) branches out into new territory in this story of a philandering husband who faces an unusual proposition from a former classmate. Kyoichi’s chronic indecisiveness steers him into numerous affairs, until his wife hires a private investigator. But the detective agrees to keep the affairs secret, in exchange for a night of intimacy. What unfolds is a journey of tentative experimentation, and perhaps an explanation for a life plagued by lingering dissatisfaction.
