2 DUO
Japan, 1996
Director: Nobuhiro Suwa

The film follows a boyfriend/girlfriend duo through a tumultuous period in their lives: Yu is a depressed shop assistant. Kei is an underachieving actor who wants to sleep all day.

They get into a quarrel over a trifling matter; the following day Kei suddenly asks Yu to marry him. His proposal confuses her, and she begins to wonder what kind of a person she really is.

Kei does not know what to do with Yu who has lost her mental balance. The two are emotionally repressed and barely talk to each other about their deteriorating mental states: instead, they address an unseen narrator and tell him what they hint at with their actions.
