Former TV commercial director Jun Ichikawa helmed this low-key comedy about a middle-aged hipster confronting his past. A 40-ish hair stylist (Masahi Tashiro) receives a phone call from his long-lost 14-year-old daughter who, after passing her high school exams, wants to meet her errant dad. The hairdresser is more than a little ambivalent about the meeting; living in a nice condo with a slinky younger woman (Kaho Minami), and spending his time betting at the horse tracks or hitting on other slinky young women at bars, he is enjoying his life. Though he plans the meeting with the utmost care, the reunion starts awkwardly. Yet while talking over their French dinners, father and daughter evidently find some common ground. This film was shown as a double-bill with Kichitaro Negishi's Chibusa.
