(No Longer Human)

Oguri Shun plays Dazai Osamu who is one of the more popular novelists in Japan. Like most artists he has his vulnerabilities and exposures. In this case, the man is an alcoholic and lustful nomad. In other words, while being married and having promised himself to one he has two harlots on the side.
