Tidepoint Pictures of the United States has announced its DVD release of “Tsuki to Cheri (Electric Button),” previously known in English as “Moon & Cherry.” Yuki Tanada’s slyly funny 2004 feature debut is about a woman who decides to educate a virginal new male member of her erotic writers’ circle in the ways of the flesh. Tanada’s later films are more humanly insightful and creatively off-kilter, but this is an excellent place to start.
