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.

突如姿を消し、朝子が心のどこかで思い続ける運命の人・麦を、掴みどころのない不思議な佇まいで具現化し、一途に朝子を想う・亮平を、やさしさと包容力で体現したのは東出昌大。初の一人二役で新境地を見せた本作は、東出の新たな「代表作」になるだろう。麦と亮平の間で揺れ動くヒロイン朝子には、”新星”唐田えりか。本作が本格演技デビューの唐田は、スクリーンの中で朝子と共に成長し、その瑞々しさで観客を魅了する。瀬戸康史、山下リオ、伊藤沙莉、渡辺大知、仲本工事、田中美佐子の豪華キャストが脇を固め、物語に深みを与えているのも見逃せない。

監督は、前作『ハッピーアワー』(15)でロカルノ、ナントをはじめ数々の国際映画祭で主要賞を受賞しその名を世界に轟かせた気鋭・濱口竜介。芥川賞作家・柴崎友香による原作「寝ても覚めても」に惚れ込み、その映画化で満を持して商業映画デビューを果たす。また、日本のエレクトロミュージックを若くして牽引するtofubeatsが映画音楽に初挑戦。物語の情感に寄り添う劇伴、本作のために書き下ろした主題歌「River」が、切なくも爽やかな余韻を残す。新しい才能が集結し生まれた本作は、カンヌ国際映画祭コンペティション部門に選出され、「日本映画の新しい波!」と海外メディアが絶賛した。
