Koji Fukada’s 2013 beach film “Hotori no Sakuko” (“Au Revoir l’Ete”) was a loving homage to French master Eric Rohmer, with lengthy European-style vacations bestowed on Fukada’s Japanese protagonists.

The film’s production company, Wa Entertainment, has now made another Rohmer-esque ensemble drama, “San-paku Yokka Go-ji no Kane” (“Chigasaki Story”), but as indicated in the Japanese title — which translates roughly as “Three Nights, Four Days, Five O’clock Bell”) — one more in tune with local realities.
