Matsuzaki is a playwright in 1926 Tokyo supported by a wealthy patron. One evening, Matsuzaki crosses paths with a beautiful and mysterious woman, leading to an odyssey of infidelity and obsession.
The second entry in Japanese style-mad, rule-breaking genius Seijun Suzuki’s series of films set in the decadent Taisho era, Heat-Haze Theatre is a fever dream of a period romance. Upending conventions of dramatic logic, it traces a sinister, visually flamboyant descent into madness—or is it love?
