YesAsia Editorial Description

A bright red goldfish takes coquettish human form and becomes the muse and pet for an aging writer in Gakuryu Ishii's surreal postwar fable Bitter Honey. Based on Muro Saisei's 1959 novel Mitsu no Aware, the mesmeric film stars Osugi Ren as the writer who longs for literary greatness before death and Nikaido Fumi (Why Don't You Play in Hell?) as the innocent and vivacious goldfish girl whose desire for human love grows along with her self-awareness. Maki Yoko co-stars as the ghost of the writer's past lover and Kora Kengo as the ghost of Akutagawa Ryunosuke.
