The Lonely Affair of the Heart


Junichi Suzuki directs the Japanese romantic melodrama Lonely Affair of the Heart, along the same lines as his tearjerker Remembering the Cosmos. Filmed in black-and-white and color, this story focuses on Orie (Rumi Sakakibara), a middle-aged woman trapped in a boring marriage to the older Shiraki (Masakane Yonekura). She is possibly saved from her misery when a young stranger (Kazuya Takahashi) shows up at her house and she begins fantasizing about him. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
