Junichi Suzuki directs the Japanese romantic melodrama Lonely Affair of the Heart, along the same lines as his tearjerker Remembering the Cosmos. Filmed in black-and-white and color, this story focuses on Orie (Rumi Sakakibara), a middle-aged woman trapped in a boring marriage to the older Shiraki (Masakane Yonekura). She is possibly saved from her misery when a young stranger (Kazuya Takahashi) shows up at her house and she begins fantasizing about him.
