Akira OSAKI 大崎章

お盆の弟

Nippon Visions   ½ 

Takeshi not only fails at his chosen career as a film director, but also at home. Kicked out by his wife, he moves in with his ill brother. While Takeshi’s wife pushes for divorce, he is dead set on saving the marriage. Even lovely Ryoko cannot divert his attention – or so he thinks. A black-and-white tale of life, love and personal growth.
