Nobuteru UCHIDA

Love Addiction

Nippon Cinema   ª 

Yukako is in a relationship with Shigehisa, who has an affair with Saeko, whom Noboru has been in love with for quite a while. Don’t get this wrong, what sounds like typical afternoon daily soap material, is in fact a small masterpiece of observation of human emotions and behavior. Brilliantly acted and directed with such ernesty and restraint, LOVE ADDICTION teaches us about the painful, addictive side of love, when it is not requited in equal amounts.
