Synopsis

Tokyo, 1940. While Japan's war against China escalates, young Yuji Takano clings to his cocooned life: his beloved evenings of French conversation at Monsieur Feneon's, visits to the bathhouse with friends, his books, his poetry.



But conscription looms and the mood turns against foreigners, just when Yuji gets entangled with Feneon's daughter. As the nation heads towards conflict with the Allies, Yuji must decide where his duty - and his heart - lie.

A weak chest and his father's status as respected professor have so far shielded Yuji Tanako from the need to sign up for military service. But his father's fall, after criticising of the Emperor, means that the reality of approaching war will impinge upon his rarified life of cultural pursuits and possible romance with the half-French daughter of his mentor. An impeccable and exquisite coming-of-age story set in a Japan experiencing its own unstoppable flux.
