Veteran director Kohei Oguri helms this stylized look at marital discord based on a book written by Toshio Shimao. The film centers on Toshio (Ittoku Kishibe), a struggling writer with a wandering eye, and his wife Miho (Keiko Matsuzaka), who is slowly being driven insane from jealousy. Designed as a series of set pieces, Miho rages at her husband who passively takes her abuse -- until he too explodes. Numerous screaming arguments and two suicide attempts later, they are still in the grips of despair.
