Director: Yôko Aki
Cast: Tomoka Kurotani makes a valiant effort in this allegedly erotic tale of Kaori, a professional thirty-something caught between her passion for an older married man and the indulgence of an energetic, but less-fulfilling, youthful suitor. Kurotani has a rare beauty and is convincingly lustful and regretful when called upon. Murakami, the older man, has a natural charisma, unfortunately under-utilised as he has barely any screen time. On the other hand, Kikawada overacts furiously to such an extent that he will have a long and successful career in many instantly forgettable TV dramas.
