Steaming erotic drama in which a man starts an affair with his ex. Before and after their passionate sexual escapades, they recollect the time when they were a couple. Director ARAI Haruhiko’s background as a scriptwriter (Vibrator, Kabukicho Love Hotel), shows in the philosophic and melancholic tone of the conversations, which contrasts nicely with the playful sex scenes.

Stomend erotisch drama, waarin een man een affaire begint met zijn ex. Voor en na hun seksuele escapades halen ze herinneringen op aan hun vroegere relatie. Regisseur ARAI Haruhiko is vooral bekend van zijn werk als scriptschrijver (o.a. Vibrator, Kabukicho Love Hotel), wat te zien is in de filosofische en melancholische toon van de gesprekken, die mooi contrasteren met de speelse seksscènes.
