Following up on the surprise success of his 1994 work Rampo, based on the life of author Edogawa Rampo, producer Kazuyoshi Okuyama adapts this noted story by the late writer. Set during the 1920s, the film focuses on Kyoko (Michiko Hada), a wide-eyed art student who is absolutely smitten with her ruggedly handsome teacher (Hiroshi Abe). Yet before she can summon the gumption to say one word to him, he quits his job in order to concentrate on his art. Later, with an extraordinary stroke of luck, she finds her new arranged husband to be none other than her hunky art prof. Soon she is married to her dream man, who proves not only to be good-looking, but kind and sensitive and rich. She first begins to realize that something is not quite right when she notices that her husband leaves their bed in the middle of the night for about an hour, and then returns smelling of a strange perfume. When Kyoko decides to tail her philandering hubby, she learns of a peculiar kink in her spouse's family dynamic -- one that would make Freud proud.
