An interesting film about the problems of women in Tokya who have to juggle the demands of their careers and their love lives. The main character is a jaded sub-editor on a newspaper who is given the task of profiling some successful career women. (She is no longer enjoying her job and her boyfriend treats her with indifference. The two she focuses on are the manager of a café who is having an affair with a married man and who has missed her period, and a former schoolfriend with a boring boyfriend and who is organising an advertising campaign featuring a famous male model that she is attracted to.
Chiaki Kuriyami plays the sub-editor's young, ditsy assistant and she is very good in what is a very different role for her that requires none of her trademark glares.
The film was well-made and acted, flipping between the various story lines without being confusing, and was surprisingly enjoyable. The subtitles had occasional oddities but were understandable and not off-putting. I obtained my R0 copy from HKFlix for $10.
