Shape of Red is the newest work from director Yukiko Mishima and is based on the devastating best-seller from Naoki-Award winning novelist Rio Shimamoto.
Toko is married and raising a lovely daughter in her husband’s luxurious family home. Her life is comfortable but she feels an emptiness. At a wedding reception, she meets the handsome and mysterious Kurata, her lover from 10 years ago. Falling helplessly into the throes of a deep passion, they embark on an intense and doomed affair that takes them far into “snow country” and the extremes of emotion.
