Sorry for being late.

I feel great.

Good morning

- Good morning

What are we doing?

-What do you mean?

No More Easy Life

Well, for the scene.

- The scene...

We'll use the moonlight.

The light is off.

The camera will be shooting all around.

We'll see the both of you sleeping.

Someone knocks at the door,

you go open it and say "ah".

The whole thing in one cut.

This happened to me.

Yeah, actually it happens alot.

I opened the door and entered.

A man and a woman were sleeping naked.

The guy was snoring loudly.

Next to the door.

Tsuneo looks more masculine than Ken Takakura.

I turn back like Fujima Ryu.

You by the door.

Lustfully, yes like this.

How's the script?

-Like this.

Yesterday, someone spilled tea on it

so we had to dry it.

Take one, light up the three.

No, higher.

Left light, OK!

Bring the microphone down!

Let's go!




What are you looking at?

You got up so early.

Are you still thinking

about that wanderer?

We've been living together

for 4 days.

Don't you think it's time we take this to another level?




What a surprise.

Mari, thank you!


-Thank you!

Put something on before!

Put something on.

Put on what?

Don't you have any?

Do we have to?


But it's better without.

Why do I have to put it on?

It really isn't the same with it.

You didn't use it

with your wanderer, didn't you?

Thank you.

Want some coffee?


Where are my pants?

Some hot one, ok?


- on.

Mary, it was wonderful.


Why did you get off here?

It's closer.

You bought it again?

Yeah, I'm rich.

What a horrible temper!


Why are you avoiding us?


She can't stand you!

I thought I smelled my boyfriend.

Do you have one?

I see, the one with the necktie isn't it?

I. B. Singer...


Excuse me, where is the Kobundo?

The Kobundo?

You go down there.

There's a school.

It's nearby, on the left.

Thank you very much.

Can I sit here?


You come often to this class...

When you're naked in front of people,

what part do you hide rst?

You... You like contemporary poetry?

Do you?

Kind of, yes.

During Nishimura's seminary

we commented on Nobuo Ayukawa.

Didn't you think it's ridiculous?

"The existence of the father"

as the essence of Ayukawas poems.

25 years after the war...

-Sorry, I'd like to read.

There are many of you today.

We'll try not to waste time.

Last time we talked about

poets in post-war Japan.

We'll continue on that topic.

Here you go!

You scared me!

It's been a while!

What's up?

-A job.


-A part-time job.


Poor thing.


What about you?

Why are you wearing a scarf?


ls he a vampire?

You seem happy.

But I'm not happy at all.

I don't really want

to get married anymore.

The other day, his father

came from the countryside.

He introduced him to me.

Apparently he liked me.

I love him too.

But not enough to marry him.

Though, I'd have regrets

if we break up.


Sorry. I thought you were someone else.

No worries.

Let's hang out together!

No thanks.


we lived together for one year,

and you went away without a word.

Welcome back.

When I realized it,

another man was in my room.

and I...



Come on.

You know,

men are not usually allowed here.


But I just saw a man

coming out of the room next door.

He was going out?

Then you'll go back home tonight too.


that's not what a man and a woman

do when they're together.

Don't you think so?

-Yeah, yeah.

What's this?

Did the wanderer give it to you?
