Asako I & II

Ryûsuke Hamaguchi / JP, 2018 / 119 min.

One woman, two loves. Sparks fly the moment Asako's and Baku’s eyes meet. But, six months after crashing into her life, he equally dramatically crashes out again, without leaving a trace.

poster Asako I & II (Ryûsuke Hamaguchi, JP 2018)
When, a few years later, Asako comes across a man who is the spitting image of Baku, at first she doesn’t understand why he acts like he doesn’t know her, introducing himself as Ryohei. In spite of their external resemblance, adventurous, unfettered Baku and cautious, reliable Ryohei (both played by Higashide Masahiro) are complete opposites.
