Review

It´s been seven years that the wife of Aoyama, a film company president, has passed away. Upon his son´s suggestion, Aoyama starts thinking about getting remarried. He takes upon his friend Yoshikawa´s suggestion that he holds an audition to find his ideal woman. From the moment that Aoyama lays his eyes on Yamajaki´s resume, he is attracted to her. Yoshikawa, who finds out that everything that Yamajaki has said at the audition is a lie, warns Aoyama about Yamajaki but it is too late. Aoyama is already deeply under her spell. Yoshikawa is also deeply disturbed by the rumor that all of the men that she´s dated have disappeared. Aoyama leaves on a vacation with Yamajaki and finds out about a personal trauma she experience when she was young. From this point on, the film alternates between reality and fantasy and the viewers are asked these type of questions. Did Yamajaki, who was sexually molested when she was young by her foster father, harbor a deep hatred of men? Was Aoyama no exception to her hatred of men? Did she make all the men who betrayed her suffer cruelly? This film does not show clearly what is true or not, whether all this is just Aoyama´s fantasy.
