Directed by Nobuhiro Suwa
Japan, 1997


In preparing for this film, Nobuhiro Suwa wrote a detailed script and then threw it away at the last moment. Instead, in a manner reminiscent of Mike Leigh and John Cassavetes, he worked intensively with the actors to develop their characters and allowed the script to develop from there.
