Synopsis

In a Japanese metropolis, a dark erotic force infiltrates the lives of a reserved career woman in her 30s and her obsessively clean workaholic husband. Invading the most private aspects of the couple′s lives, a mysterious stranger sends an envelope bearing the inscription “Your Husband′s Secrets.”

Our take

Shinya Tsukamoto set himself apart in contemporary Japanese cinema as the unique creator of nightmarish visions set in futuristic worlds. In bluish black and white, this erotic tale evocatively conveys the tensions of sexual repression and obsession, winning a Special Jury Prize in Venice.
