A stylish mixture of deadpan social satire, Buñuelian surrealism and unnerving suspense. A mild-mannered Tokyo man helps out an old acquaintance he barely remembers by making him an apprentice in his small printing business. The new worker soon becomes a permanent resident in his benefactor’s household, bringing along a blond woman he introduces as his Brazilian wife. Step by step, the visiting couple subvert the relationships among their host, his younger wife and his unmarried sister.
