YesAsia Editorial Description

Dazai Osamu's unfinished work Goodbye is reborn as a screwball comedy in Farewell: Comedy of Life Begins with A Lie! Writer KERA's play Goodbye reinterpreted Dazai's posthumous work from his own unique perspective. Directed by Narushima Izuru (Solomon's Perjury), this film adaptation reunites the play's leads Oizumi Yo and Koike Eiko for a charming comedy set in the postwar Showa era. Mizuakawa Asami, Hashimoto Ai, Ogawa Tamaki, Kimura Tae, Hamada Gaku and Matsushige Yutaka also appear in the film.

Tajima Shuji (Oizumi Yo) is the editor-in-chief of a literary magazine. Despite his indecisive personality, he is quite popular with women and has many lovers. He decides it's time to break things off and live differently, but finds it difficult to just directly break up with his girlfriends. Instead, he decides to get the greedy, uncouth and messy-looking Nagai Kinuko (Koike Eiko) to pose as his wife. Kinuko agrees for the sake of money, and it turns out she's a total beauty once she cleans herself up! Thus begins the fake marriage of a man and woman who are like oil and water.
