A spontaneous romance blooms between Kawamura, a professor touring Europe, and Naoko, a married woman living in Paris, scarred by the Nagasaki atomic bombings. The two protagonists travel around Europe trying to find themselves.
An engineer's wife returns home with a lost teenager. A man posing as her dad tries to get her back, causing the engineer to recall his youth as a revolutionary, obscured by dreamlike disruptions of time and space, fantasy and reality.
Two interwoven stories. The first is a biography of anarchist Sakae Osugi which follows his relationship with three women in the 1920s. The second centers around two 1960s' students researching Osugi's theories.
A sales clerk in a department shop gets blown off by a waitress in an out-of-the-way cafe, while the girl he's just spent the night with looks on as if not caring what he does. You'll wonder if girl's a prostitute for 10 seconds at the very most, be surprised by the man going back to the cafe to pretty much force the waitress - someone he'd only seen the one time before - onto the back of his motorbike and then take her to live with him.
If you're still watching, you'll be wondering what's happening, as the ridiculously unrealistic character events continue, with the man getting the waitress a job at a bar and escorting some drunken patron home.
With the only other "review" on the site pretty much detailing every plot point and the ending, you'll feel even more justified in turning this mess of a film off, which is exactly what I did, because I seriously doubted something so stupid could get any better.
