Bicycle

“Dear Thief, please just take the whole thing.”

What to make of poor Mamoru Amagaya? He lives a lonely life that is punctuated by office gossip and a bully co-worker that just turned his face into mincemeat. The world seems to have turned against him and now even his bicycle is a target. Every day, he finds a piece missing until all that remains is a bell. One day he gets a mysterious envelope containing addresses where each piece of the bike might be retrieved. Who is this stranger? And why has he chosen Mamoru? Directed by Dean Yamada. Principal Cast: Yugo Saso, Masayuki Yui and Yasuko Fleming.
