Okoge

Edition 1993
120' - 1992 - Drama, Romance - Dialogue: Japanese
Director: Takehiro Nakajima Composer: Hiroshi Ariyoshi With: Misa Shimizu, Takehiro Murata, Takeo Nakahara, Masayuki Shionoya
Given the low visibility of gay men in Japanese society, Japan is the last country you'd expect to come up with the year's most credible and engrossing account of a gay relationship. But that's exactly what Okoge is: a candid, intimate story of the ups and downs in an affair between a married salary-man and his younger, self-employed lover, seen through the entranced eyes of a young woman who Iets them use her bed when they have no place else to go. (Tony Rayns)
