Short Film Profile


A university professor goes on a tour in Akihabara, guided by a young woman dressed up like a French maid. As they walk through the streets of modern Tokyo, they gradually speak of a past they both share, and ultimately a painful love triangle that continues to haunt them.

Film notes

Inspired by a Yasunari Kawabata short story. A poetic meditation of love, loss and memory presented almost entirely in split screens.
