Replay: Me & My Brother's Mistress
Nippon Visions ½
Since the death of their parents, Yoko and Kenji have been inseparable. One night, Yoko witnesses her brother dating an unknown woman. This, of course, wouldn’t be a problem – if Kenji was not already engaged. Yoko confronts the woman named Misa, asking her to end the affair. But pretty soon she starts to realize that Misa might be a better match for Kenji than his current fiancée. Thanks to its relatable female protagonists and subtle humor, ME & MY BROTHER’S MISTRESS was one of the highlights of the SKIP CITY INTERNATIONAL D-Cinema FESTIVAL 2019, where it received the audience award.
