A pompous company director and his attention-hungry wife host an evening soirée at their extravagant home. As the party winds down, a mixed group of remaining guests gathers on the terrace and continue drinking. After an innocuous comment is made about how lovely one guest’s arms look, however, the party takes a turn towards farce as the guests’ thinly-veiled jealousy, carnal desires and overwhelming insecurities become exposed. A Buñuelian satire of bourgeois social propriety, this whip-smart ensemble comedy skewers Japan’s professional class with uncomfortably perceptive insight. Adapted from director Kenji Yamauchi’s stage play Trois Grotesque, winner of the prestigious Kishida Drama Award in 2015.
