After months of incessant rain, two young women sharing a flat try to cure their melancholy by singing, stealing vegetables or by riding bicycles in shops.

In Unk, Makoto Tezuka (The Legend of the Forest) pays tribute to 2001 a Space Odyssey whereas with High-School Terror he integrates all the codes of J-Horror within a few minutes. Rain Women, the first film by Shinobu Yaguchi (Waterboys), is the japanese response to Vera Chytilová's Daisies, as it's infused with the same rage and anarchy.
