Short summary

'We have to kill him', the wife and her lover thought. When three childhood friends reunite, it doesn't take long before two of them feel the woman's husband is in their way. They push him into a lake, but the boat capsizes and all three are thrown into the water. The lovers reach the shore, but the husband is nowhere. Has he drowned? They decide to wait at a lakeside hotel for his body to be found. Based on Emile Zola's masterpiece 'Therese Raquin', mismatched emotions of women and men are conveyed via 16mm film. Coarse sensuality.

    I have watched this film 5 times on the screen. Although I couldn't well understood at first, sensitive feelings of the characters have been transmitted from their delicate expression every time I saw, I realized that this story was in a deep love. And, I felt the contrast between immoral affairs of murderers and sad eyes of the ghost of slain husband was so amazing. In addition, winter lake landscape was so beautifully, 'Areno' became very precious film for me. Specially, my favorite actor Satoru Kawaguchi, who played so difficult role - Unknown whether he is dead or alive - made me feel brand new. In 16mm film, he made me know about true love, I became more and more addicted to him. For this reason, 'Areno' was so lovely film.
