Critic’s Pick! Bewitching and sometimes unsettling…
A mysterious and intoxicating pop romance based on a 2010 novel by Shibasaki Tomoka about a woman who falls in love with two men who have the same face but completely opposite personalities.
Hamaguchi Ryūsuke’s first commercial debut film since his critically acclaimed Happy Hour (2015) saga begins with Asako, a young woman who meets and falls madly in love with a drifter, Baku, who one day drifts right out of her life.
Two years later, working in Tokyo, Asako sees Baku again — or, rather, a young, solid businessman named Ryohei who bears a striking resemblance to her old flame. They begin building a happy life together until traces of Asako’s past start to resurface.
