A writer in crisis (Yusuke Santamaria) sits in a bar in search of the vein and is intrigued by the story of neighbors about the table of a woman and past love affair with one of them. It puts it on paper and turns it into a story. The episode is repeated and love stories, better than amorous crises, become two, three, four. But “his” novel, the one that the publisher expects and demands insistently, stagnates. Try and try again but not the ideas are. He decides that the cause of the lack of creativity is the married life, flat and repetitive, and therefore asks the wife to separate for a while ‘. It only remains but things do not change, even worse. One day they call the hospital where his wife was hospitalized for an accident. Rushes to the bedside and understands that his life flat and repetitive “” is the most important asset they have. Returns home with his wife and writes all these things: he found his great novel.
omnibus comedy that is an interesting example of productive mechanisms of the Japanese entertainment industry. Born as a serial story in a magazine published between 2004 and 2005, has become a drama for mobile phones in 11 episodes, then condensed in television drama in 5 episodes, it finally became a movie, all the while under the hand of Yukisada Isao, which now seems to have lost all creativity, but not the job. Entertainment par excellence, is seen in a painless manner. Various actresses, otherwise good and pleasant. On all stands Aibu Saki for sensuality, while Yuka and Mizukawa Asami are fairly anonymous and Koyuki a bit ‘too ethereal. Appreciable Hasegawa Kyoko as his wife.
