2009, 107 min., 35 mm, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Kenji Nakanishi. With Keiko Kitagawa, Masahiro Komoto, Shuntaro Miyao, Akiko Aitsuki.

Adapted from a short story by Fujisawa shuhei.

If Jane Austen had ever written an edo-period love story or Ozu Yasujiro directed a swordplay drama, it might have looked a little like After the Flowers, an exquisitely mounted second feature by Nakanishi Kenji in which all emotions are beneath social surfaces and swordplay is held back to only two life-changing fights.
