(YOSHIDA Daihachi 吉田大八/2014/126 min)
Rika is a housewife-turned-bank employee who sells bonds and retirement schemes from door to door of the elderly affluent. During one such routine visit, she catches the eye of university student Kota. Long starved for affection due to her husband’s indifference, Rika engages in an affair with her young suitor, supported by increasingly daring dips into her clientele’s money. As she splurges on expensive goods and consecutive nights in luxurious hotels, her attitudes towards money and her daily life become distorted, finally plunging her into full-blown embezzlement.
An absorbing tale of conformity and rebellion set shortly after the burst of the Japanese economic bubble, the film is marked by strong performances from the cast, who have gone on to sweep the country’s top acting awards.
