Another sleek and stylish film by Ryûsuke Hamaguchi begins with Gumi and Meiko (Katone Furukawa) in electric conversation and the news of a potential new love interest. Professor Segawa (Kiyohiko Shibukawa) keeps his school office door wide open to avoid potential accusations of harassment and misconduct, yet even being visible doesn't stop an erotic reading with an older student being recorded that causes trouble for both. The finale presents a school reunion and chance encounter between two people who vaguely remember one another. As their encounter develops, they enact the roles of people they thought they were. Winner of the 2021 Silver Bear Grand Jury prize at the Berlin International Film Festival.
