The 8-Year Engagement

MA15+ Romance

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for The 8-Year Engagement at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

Japanese erotica director Takahisa Zeze takes on the romance genre—the result is a refreshingly straightforward love story that is equal parts heart-warming and heart-wrenching.

This beautiful love story starts when Mai and Hisashi (Takeru Sato) meet at a gokon (group blind date). Polar opposites, Mai is bubbly and headstrong, while Hisashi is quiet and considerate. But opposites do attract—they naturally fall in love and eventually get engaged. However, Mai is suddenly struck down with a rare disease that sends her into a coma. Despite her slim chances of survival, Hisashi refuses to leave her side.
