The Knot

結び目 (Musubime)
North American Premiere
Sunday, July 17, 2011



2010. 91 min., HD Cam, in Japanese with English subtitles.
Directed by Yuichi Onuma. With Mukku Akazawa, Junichi Kawamoto, So Hirosawa.

With The Knot, director Yuichi Onuma creates a hothouse chamber drama of sexual intrigue. Asako (Mukku Akazawa), frustrated and trapped in an uneventful and dull marriage, spends her days running errands for her husband and taking care of his father (Kouichi Ueda), who suffers from old-age dementia and general (bad) bizarre behavior, which involves punching her in the face when the fancy takes him.

Her past catches up with her when she is sent to drop off her husband’s laundry only to realize that the owner is her former teacher and lover. This unexpected meeting shatters her tranquil lifestyle as long suppressed emotions and memories come to the fore.
