Three women deal with the problems of modern relationships in different situations. Writer-director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi explores multiple facets of the human condition to delightfully affecting effect.

An unexpected love triangle, a failed seduction trap and an encounter that results from a misunderstanding. Meiko is startled when she realizes that the man who her best friend starts to have feelings for, is her ex; Sasaki plots to trick his college professor out of revenge, using his class-friend-with-benefits Nao, while Natsuko encounters a woman who seems to be someone from her past, leading the two to confess the feelings they have harbored in their hearts -- stories about the complexities of relationships, told through coincidences that happen in the lives of women in love.

This female-led triptych of stories, with its deft, empathetic camerawork and intimate, intricately crafted character sketches, is a minor masterpiece in its own right. - Wendy Ide - The Observer

2021 | Drama/Romance | 121 min | Dir. Ryûsuke Hamaguchi | Subtitled
