YesAsia Editorial Description

After making a splash in 2015 with Happy Hour, director Hamaguchi Ryusuke adapts Akutagawa Prize-winning writer Shibasaki Tomoka's novel Netemo Sametemo into the enigmatic romance drama Asako I & II. Karata Erika (Love x Doc) was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Asian Film Awards for her first leading role as the eponymous young woman torn between two men who look the same. Higashide Masahiro (Over Drive) takes on dual roles as the two very different objects of her affections. Asako I & II was selected for competition at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, and also screened at the San Sebastian, Toronto and New York Film Festivals.

In college, Asako (Karata Erika) instantly falls head over heels for the cool, confident and free-spirited Baku. She ignores her friends' warnings and he eventually breaks her heart by disappearing without a word. Two years later, Asako is working at a coffee shop and meets salaryman Ryohei, who is the spitting image of Baku. However, his personality could not be more different. Drawn in by his resemblance to Baku, Asako develops a relationship with the nice and dependable Ryohei. Just as she's ready to settle down for good, Baku reappears in her life again.
