Since the death of their parents, Yoko and Kenji have been inseparable. One night, Yoko witnesses her brother dating an unknown woman. This, of course, wouldn’t be a problem – if Kenji was not already engaged. Yoko confronts the woman named Misa, asking her to end the affair. But pretty soon she starts to realize that Misa might be a better match for Kenji than his current fiancée. (Source: NipponConnection) Edit Translation

A new take on 'the other woman'

First of all, I want to say a huge thank you to The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2021 Online Special without whom I would not have seen this film.

This is a really interesting film, looking at 'the other woman' in a way few films (which I've seen) have done before, with honesty & humour. The characters all feel very real & their motivations are generally understandable. In the middle of this very grown-up story is a teenage girl trying to figure out her own life whilst the people around her are making decisions she just can't fathom; she makes some brave & mature choices that really show her strength of character & give the film a strong foundation. The other two female leads both give stunning performances but in very different ways; however, Murata Yui as 'the other woman' displayed such an emotional & likeable interpretation, of a role that is normally very unlikeable, stole the show for me.
Technically, there are some brilliant shots, including quite a few close-ups of the actresses staring straight into the camera, which make those moments feel really intimate.
That ending is just screaming for a Thelma & Louise-esque sequel 😂
