A group of young flatmates sharing a tiny Tokyo apartment find their lives thrown into hazard when a mysterious golden-haired stranger takes residence on their sofa, just when a number of brutal murders have been committed in a nearby park. Isao Yukisada’s existential drama starring Tatsuya Fujiwara (Battle Royale) is based on the bestselling novel by Shuichi Yoshida.

原作は、「悪人」を始めとする話題作を近年の日本映画界に多数提供している小説家・吉田修一の山本周五郎賞受賞作。ルームシェアという形態を通して、どこかにひずみを抱えた共同生活を送る5人の若者の一人を藤原竜也が好演。謎めいたラスト・シーンの解釈をめぐって評判を呼んだこの異色の作品は、ベルリン国際映画祭で国際批評家連盟賞を受賞した。
