Set 3 years after the drama series.
Yuichiro (Takumi Saito) visits a town to give a lecture and meets divorcee Sawa (Aya Ueto) for the first time in 3 years. She now lives alone.
- Movie title "Hirugao" is derived from a relatively new Japanese expression "Heijitsu Hirugao Tsuma" which refers to housewives having afternoon affairs while their husband's are working. The expression "Heijitsu Hirugao Tsuma" is derived from the French film "Belle de Jour” which is itself based on the 1928 novel "Belle de Jour “ by Joseph Kessel.
