About Wife of a Spy
Wife of a Spy is a riveting, gorgeously crafted, old-school Hitchockian thriller shot in stunning 8K.
The year is 1940 in Kobe, Japan, on the eve of the outbreak of World War II. Local merchant and amateur filmmaker Yusaku (Issey Takahashi, Kill Bill) senses that things are headed in an unsettling direction. Following a trip to Manchuria, he becomes determined to bring to light the things he witnessed there, and secretly filmed.
Meanwhile, his wife, Satoko (Yû Aoi, recipient of Japan Society’s the CUT ABOVE Award for Outstanding Performance in Film during its 2021 JAPAN CUTS Festival of New Japanese Film), receives a visit from her childhood friend, now a military policeman. He warns her about Yusaku’s seditious ways and reveals that a woman her husband brought back from his trip has died. Satoko confronts Yusaku, but when she discovers his true intentions, she is torn between loyalty to her husband, the life they have built, and the country they call home.
