Tadashi, a handsome businessman, has vanished. Imamura and his crew interview the man’s fiancee, Yoshie, who is desperately searching for him, and the filmmaker becomes increasingly involved in her life.

MUBI's take

A fascinating fiction-nonfiction hybrid from the Japanese New Wave’s Shohei Imamura (The Ballad of Narayama), beginning as standard documentary before developing into something far more complex. A self-reflexive meta-mystery that follows an existential and elusive, jagged line of enquiry.
