Love's Whirlpool

Love's Whirlpool

At a fancy split-level condo in Tokyo's Roppongi nightlife neighborhood, four women and 4 men gather from midnight to 5 am. They will have all paid to be there (men over women), and they've just one thing in common--they seek anonymous sex. Employing no titles, they truly are known only by these type s: freeter (temp or part-time worker), mild-mannered salaryman, duplicitous OL (office lady), shy functioning class factory worker, perfectionist educator, veteran pervert, self-conscious NEET ("not in education, training or employment") and shy faculty student. Together, they unravel their identities at a nighttime of climbing debauchery. Daisuke Miura's adaptation of his critically acclaimed 2005 drama of the same name explores Japan's fuzoku (sex industry) with depth, comedy as well as free-wheeling indecency. This upsetting, sensuous and sudden film features performances by Sosuke Ikematsu and Mugi Kadowaki, who are tempted to mix love with sex.
