Storyline

Near Kawahara, a young man on a bus connives to meet a single mother by knocking over her son's box of crickets. He's Hiroshi, she's Haruka, the boy is Yuichiro. Hiroshi pursues Haruka, and she invites him into her flat. When Hiroshi is not engaged in exuberant sex with her, he's playing with Yuichiro and learning the intricacies of the neighborhood sport, cricket wrestling. The local cricket-raising champion is Anzai, who desires Haruka for himself. Haruka's ex-husband Taro and his girlfriend Kunico are also around - and everyone's paths will cross over desire, love, loneliness, and the quest for a victorious cricket.

a cucumber is put to an unusual use
23 April 2009 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Quirky but likable 'pink' with more than a little humour. Very well shot, this is fast moving with lots of varied and vigorous sex, pubic hair too.

The leading lady is lovely and always up for it, she also looks after her little boy and in her own way an elderly guy she seems to owe money to.

There is a lot of stuff about sumo wrestling crickets, a cucumber is put to an unusual use and at a possibly premature funeral our heroine and another both dressed in black give us a fine girl on girl display in the graveyard
