Wife of a Spy (2020)

Kiyoshi Kurosawa directs Yū Aoi, Issey Takahashi and Masahiro Higashide in this Japanese period espionage drama where a wife begins to suspect her well to do husband of treachery against the state.

A couple of neat minor set pieces but the digital lensing of the 1940s setting looks really ugly. Which is a shame as some of the detailing and the casting would be quite handsome. Not one of the usually fascinating Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s more interesting works.
