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.
