Movie Info

British-born filmmaker John Williams directs this semi-surreal Japanese-language drama that blurs the lines between reality and fantasy while detailing a mystery fiction-loving salaryman's search for his missing wife. There was a time when Ariso (Koichi Sato) longed to become a writer, but these days he's content just to soak up the latest mysteries penned by best-selling author Jo Kuroda. Kuroda's erotic new novel "Starfish Hotel" in particular, has been slowly working its way into the salaryman's subconscious. Confounded by the recent disappearance of his wife and haunted by an affair he once had with sexy temptress Kayoko, introverted Ariso sets out locate his missing spouse after receiving a flyer for Kuroda's latest novel from a mysterious man in a dodgy bunny suit. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
