Writer-director Nishikawa Miwa (Dear Doctor) adapts her own Naoki Prize-nominated novel Nagai Iiwake for the silver screen in The Long Excuse. True to the director's style, the critically praised drama patiently unfolds a quiet, quirky and piercing story of a man slowly realizing his own nature. The Long Excuse stars Motoki Masahiro (Departures) as a pretentious writer and 40th Japan Academy Prize Best Supporting Actor nominee Takehara Pistol as a plain-spoken driver, two very different men who cope with their wives' deaths in different ways.
Famous novelist Kinugasa Sachio (Motoki Masahiro) treats his wife (Fukatsu Eri) dismissively and is carrying on an affair on the side. While he's meeting with his lover (Kuroki Haru), his wife passes away suddenly in a bus accident. Sachio is rather unmoved by her death, but he vainly puts on a show of grief for the camera. At a meeting of the bereaved, he runs into old classmate Yoichi (Takehara Pistol) whose wife passed away in the same accident. Unlike Sachio, Yoichi is a distressed mess over the loss of his wife, and struggling to take care of their two children on his own. Sachio impulsively offers to babysit while Yoichi, a long-haul truck driver, is away for work. In the curious process, he becomes increasingly attached to Yoichi's family and their roles in each other's lives.
