Grand Prize, 2010 Tokyo FILMeX Competition
Warning: this film may hurt your feelings… Two couples who work in the same company and spend their time off sleeping with each other clash, crash and burn (metaphorically). As minimalist as a Donald Judd’s art and as surgical as Roland Barthes’ Fragments of a Lover’s Discourse, Uchida’s film explores the vagaries and urgency of desire and the fracturing of friendships that result from the wanderings of the amorous subjects. An onslaught of raw emotional realism.
