Asako and Baku share an intense, all-consuming romance—but one day the moody Baku ups and vanishes. Two years later, having moved from Osaka to Tokyo, Asako meets Baku’s exact double.

Our take

Ryūsuke Hamaguchi’s intimate and immersive Happy Hour is one of the best films of the past decade. Equally devoted to the innermost feelings of its characters is his follow-up, Asako I & II, an entrancing, Vertigo-inspired romance mystery, featuring a lively soundtrack by J-Pop star Tofubeats.
