Hideo, who lives alone, owns a life-size “air doll”, which suddenly finds herself with a heart. Everything is new to her in the world outside Hideo’s house. One afternoon, she meets Junichi who works at a rental video store, and instantly falls in love with him.

MUBI's take

With his trademark mix of tenderness and unexpected comedy, Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda (Shoplifters) explores the meaning of love and relationships in this quirky story of an “air doll” that comes to life. The loneliness of life in the city is perfectly captured with a melancholy beauty.
