The Laughing Frog
Filmfest 2005

On the run, his career and marriage finished after indulging in adultery, fraud and theft, destitute ex-banker Ippei hides out in his rich father-in-law's summer house. But when his wife Ryoko discovers him, he is forced to agree to a divorce in return for a week hidden away. Through a peephole in his closet, Ippei witnesses the moves of his wife's lover, her madcap family's in-fighting, and the snooping of the local police. As he sweats it out, his passion for Ryoko is revived. 2003, Leeds International Film Festival
