Based on the writings of a true life, vision-impaired lawyer comes a story about a blind man who manages to pass the extremely difficult bar exam and earn his lawyer’s license. Long desiring to help the weak, Kensuke Okochi gets a job at an attorney’s office while he and his wife, also blind, look forward to their first child. When a plaintiff in a divorce case decides to withdraw from litigation, Kensuke worries at first that it has to do with his own perceived inadequacies as a lawyer, but a few days later, he is visited by the female plaintiff, Satomi, showing injuries to her body. While it appears an open and shut case of domestic violence with an audio recording as proof, Kensuke detects a “certain scent” coming from the plaintiff which gives him pause as to her real intentions.

Sayonara Midori

さよならみどりちゃん   안녕 , 미도리   再見了小綠

98 min.

Naive office girl Yuko supports her blithe big city lifestyle with a part-time job at a neighborhood cafe. Attracted to her manager there, the shallow but charming Yutaka, willingly succumbs to his lascivious advances only to discover afterwards that he already has a girlfriend by the name of Midori. Even so, Yuko’s feelings for Yutaka continue to grow regardless his aloofness and before long she finds herself reluctantly cajoled into working as a hostess in a small karaoke bar. Fatalistically accepting his dalliances with flames old and new, she perseveres not so much in hope of a more substantial relationship, but rather out of fear of losing him.
There are other men out there waiting for her - kinder, more considerate and eagerly available - but for Yuko, there is only the non-committal yet torridly magnetic Yutaka. Why him? Not even Yuko seems to know the answer...
