Completed under the Kobe Workshop Cinema Project, the film tells a story of four friends; housewife, nurse, cafe worker and curator. They have concerns about love, work, and relationships. Unlike their calm appearances, their lives have slight cracks. Their story goes into unexpected direction. The innovation of the film is that the director pulls this 5-hour marathon drama without any particular event. Hamaguchi Rhysuke focuses on showing words and emotions that we just think but don’t express normally. Plots are controlled by the mystery of human relationship and the impact of exposed words and actions. While the camera captures monotonous scenes, conversations and behaviors, it shows the result of cracks in a comfortable and peaceful life. (JANG Byungwon)
