Comments: Damn. Rie Miyazawa is usually sexy charisma in the flesh. She's pretty good here but the film made her flat. Director Daihachi Yoshida is on a downward spiral in my book. Funuke Show Some Love, You Losers! was fantastic, and Permanent Nobara was pretty darned good. I didn't like The Kirishima Thing at all, unlike many others. If you want to see a great movie about someone who unwinds once they start innocently embezzling money from a bank where they work, check out Owning Mahowny (2003). Philip Seymour Hoffman R.I.P.

Summary: Rika Umezawa (Rie Miyazawa) lives with her husband, but without any children. She works part-time at a bank. Rika receives favorable evaluations from her clients and boss because of her attentive work. Nevertheless, she feels a sense of emptiness from her husband who doesn't seem interested in her. Rika then falls into an extramarital affair with a younger man named Kota. She also begins to embezzle money from her clients.
