Six riveting Japanese short stories have been brought to life in one omnibus film that captures your heart and imagination. “Lemon” about a young man suffering from anxiety who comes across some lemons being sold at his favorite fruit shop. As he buys a lemon, he envisions the fruit curing him of his condition in an explosive way. The other five stories include “Magic” about a magician who agrees to teach an apprentice some magic tricks only if he can abandon all of his desires; “Fumiko No Ashi” about a former Geisha who satisfies the dying needs of an old man with a foot fetish; “Wonderful Scene” about an upper-class young man’s first experience with love; “Good-bye” about a man who wants to leave his hectic city life to reside in the quiet countryside but must first break up with all of his mistresses; and “The Boat on the Takase River,” a modern retelling of a story about euthanasia and poverty.
