Told in three interconnected segments, we follow a young man named Takaki through his life as cruel winters, cold technology, and finally, adult obligations and responsibility converge to test the delicate petals of love.
A woman has a fine life with rewarding work, a nice house, and a serious boyfriend in the lowlands of Japan. In walks her long lost husband who years ago disappeared and abandoned her. The wife allows her lost husband to secretly live in her house. More specifically, he lives in the wife's closet. The closet has a peep hole, so he does nothing day and night but watch his wife live her life.
All of this sounds much more interesting than it is. A LAUGHING FROG is billed as a comedy by a great horror director. For me, the humor was weak and the drama was too bland. Like kissing a frog, one does not know what will happen until you complete the experience. A LAUGHING FROG may be worth a watch if a viewer is in a curious mood.
