NETEMO SAMETEMO (ASAKO I & II)
NAME OF FILM: NETEMO SAMETEMO (ASAKO I & II)
DIRECTOR(S): Ryûsuke Hamaguchi
STARRING: Masahiro Higashide, Erika Karata, Sairi Itô
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: Asako I & II follows the titular 21-year-old Osaka woman (Erika Karata) who falls in love with the charmingly vacant Baku (Masahiro Higashide). One day, Baku mysteriously vanishes, but when, two years later, Asako meets what appears to be his look-alike in Tokyo, her world is thrown upside-down. Crisply shot and beautifully acted, Asako I & II plays like a strange kind of contemporary ghost story, one in which ghosts of the recent past appear in the most unexpected of ways.
