Asako I & II
2,480 Ratings


Asako is a young woman who meets and falls madly in love with a drifter, Baku, who one day drifts right out of her life. Two years later, in Tokyo, Asako sees Baku again—or, rather, a young, solid businessman named Ryohei who bears a striking resemblance to her old flame.

Our take

What better way to celebrate Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Oscar® win for Drive My Car than to immerse yourself in his earlier Vertigo-inspired romance mystery! Lovingly devoted to the innermost feelings and fluctuations of its characters, Asako I & II hums to a lively soundtrack by J-Pop star Tofubeats.
