Preplexing at Times
2 March 2019 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

"Yuriko Anzai" (Mariko Okada) is a single woman in her thirties who happens to have an extremely possessive lover named "Akira Sugino" (Yukio Ninagawa) who has just found out that she is pregnant. But rather than have his child she tells him that she is going to another city to have her pregnancy terminated. Although he doesn't get angry with this news, the fact that she prefers to have another man accompany her to the clinic upsets him to the point that he decides to follow her there. Sure enough, when he sees the other man named "Kazuo Imai" (Isao Kimura) he confronts the two of them and from that point on decides to harass them at every opportunity. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a rather strange film which was a difficult for me to understand at times. Of course, part of that could be due to cultural differences but in any case I was left unable to fully appreciate it and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Average.
