Nobuhiro Suwa is part of the current so called Japanese new wave; he is something of a new kid on the block with only two other films under his belt preceding this film. Pretty bloody good, is a good way to describe this film. The director, Suwa, plays a director making a remake of Alain Resnais' "Hiroshima mon amore", a seminal film of the French new wave.
