In Ryusuke Hamaguchu's elegant and entertaining film, we meet 3 different women, whose lives do not connect but whose stories share a common theme: the role of fate in resolving, or otherwise, their relationship difficulties. Shown in 3 episodes, these stories about the complexities of relationships add up to much more than the sum of their parts.
Thanks to Modern Films
A poignant, sometimes piercing triptych of tales, each one predicated on chance encounters and romantic possibilities, it finds Hamaguchi in playful, beguiling and quietly affecting form.
