Of the film, competition programming director Yoshi Yatabe said it “humanely depicts the life-affirming drama of a married couple.”
Meanwhile, Rikiya Imaizumi’s Just Only Love is a tale of one-sided devotion based on a novel by Mitsuyo Kakuta.
“Imaizumi’s filmmaking has been enriched with the new perspective of a female author. Yukino Kishii, who is full of coquettish charm as the protagonist, and Ryo Narita, who is brimming with lively persuasive power, deserve special attention,” said Yatabe.
A total of 1,829 titles from 109 countries and regions were submitted this year, according to TIFF.
