A Drowning Man

2000 NR

Tokio (Shinya Tsukamoto) has just found his wife, Kumiko (Reiko Kataoka), dead in the bathtub. Stunned, he lays her on the couch, sits next to her and drinks until he blacks out. When he awakens to find Kumiko alive and well, Tokio's forced to question what's real and what isn't. Written and directed by Naoki Ichio, this atmospheric drama is a surrealist meditation on the slow death of a failed marriage.
