In Somai’s final film, an alcoholic civil servant wakes up under a cherry tree in Tokyo next to a bar hostess with whom he’s impulsively made a suicide pact. Though he’s now changed his mind, he agrees to travel with her to Hokkaido, her preferred site for ending it all. An elegiac road movie of restrained emotion.
