Asako I & II
One day, the man Asako thought she would spend her life with suddenly disappears. Two years later, she meets his perfect double. But her troubles are far from over. Director Ryusuke HAMAGUCHI’s film manages to be psychologically nuanced and ambiguous, yet full of humor at the same time. The impressive score and elaborate photography provide additional heft to the main themes.
