Unemployed movie, where the character spends all day having an affair with strangers through dating sites ...
This  is the premise of "Uragiri no Machi," directed by Daisuke Miura where  he develops a world of secretly confused affairs and mature infidelity  in the world of unemployment, as the unemployed Yuichi spends his days  finding women on online dating sites through the laptop of his girlfriend, Satomi. Meanwhile, Tomoko is a 40-year-old housewife who feels slightly in connection with her marriage to her husband Koji. Technically speaking it's a subtle and rather static long. The  characters are significant in their performances and occasionally feel  as if they really were real human beings who are not aware that they are  secretly harming other people but also causing a turn for themselves  while love remains very powerful for that separate. The  soundtrack is silent, almost non-existent in the background, and yet  subtly gentle enough to become a sordid part of the stormy subject being  acted on in cinematography.
