Sunday Drive (1998) DVD5
Yui (Miako Tadano) and Shinji (Takumi Tanji) are young live-in lovers who work part-time at a neighborhood video store. But the store's middle-aged manager, Okamura (Shinya Tsukamoto) has a crush on Yui, which he confesses one day while getting ready for a staff barbecue. Also, that evening Shinji tells the manager he has been cheating on Yui -- and begs him not to tell her.
Then, one startling jump-cut later, Shinji is on the floor, his head in the middle of a spreading pool of blood and Okamura is standing over him, with a disquieting look of satisfaction on his face. Is it an accident -- or murder? We begin to suspect the latter when, instead of calling for an ambulance or the police, Okamura drives off with Yui in a mini-van he has borrowed from Shinji's brother.
