Asako I & II

Co-presented by Acropolis Cinema and Film at LACMA

A mysterious and intoxicating pop romance, Ryûsuke Hamaguchi’s follow-up to the acclaimed
Happy Hour begins with Asako, a young woman who meets and falls madly in love with a drifter, Baku, who one day drifts right out of her life. Two years later, working in Tokyo, Asako sees Baku again — or, rather, a young, solid businessman named Ryohei who bears a striking resemblance to her old flame. They begin building a happy life together until traces of Asako’s past start to resurface.
