It was a pre-destined love and marriage for Sonoko and Tetsuo. 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 bonds 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? (Source: IMDb) Edit Translation

Rewatch Value 4.0
I had high expectations considering how amazing the cast is and how the director mentioned she had set this story aside for the right moment but it didn't leave a strong impression on me.

Story:
The story has a lot of potentials. I think it was daring of the director to chose a story that talks about the sex toy industry. Even though the ideas and themes this story wanted to express were very thorough, the pacing of the story felt off in certain parts. At times the plot becomes predictable which made me gradually lose interest. For having a storyline like this movie, I expect more depth or development that depicts the character's life.

Cast:
No complaints about the cast! People were excited to see these Takahashi Issei and Aoi Yu come back together since they last worked on a film together "All About Lily Chou Chou". There's a lot of small details for these characters that you could clearly tell through their acting. If you're watching this movie purely to see their acting, I could understand why.

Music:
Music was used sparingly throughout the movie. Most of it was left empty to emphasize the reality and the sense of time passing by. Whenever music was used, it largely affected the mood of the story, easily informing the audience how the scenes should be portrayed. Simply by listening to the music, I could recall the scenes it was used for. The only reason why I did not give music a full score is because of how the void was sometimes too much and affected the pace of the movie.

Rewatch Value:
The only reason why I could see people rewatching the movie is if they're really drawn by the cast's acting. I personally don't see the need for rewatching when there are plentiful of other movies that could be worth my time.

Overall, the movie isn't bad nor excellent, just average. It's a typical romance movie plotline with a slightly different concept.
