Charlotte-Susabi is a surrealistic drama in which a Japanese artist Kamimura, disillusioned by the world and himself, combats and connects with the world before him – as he moves freely among reality, memory and fantasy through the three women who are involved with him.
"Film-maker of the Body" Masaki Iwana’s subject The Theory of Life for Matters will be developed through the "glass" – a substance which is transparent, rigid and dangerous.
One early Summer afternoon, a Japanese performer Kamimura (aged 45) who lives in Paris visits a glass shop located in Bastille to order a flat glass to use for his performances. There he meets a hostess Asako (39 years old) who looks exactly like Suiko, his ex-wife. Asako is now the mother of a seven year old son and a friendly husband. She had moved to France to become a ballerina.
On the same day, Kamimura steps into the metro because of a sudden rain and sees Charlotte (32 years old), a French freak woman with beautiful deep eyes, exposed to the crowd looking on. That night, Kamimura dreams of sexual union with Charlotte. Kamimura visits the glass shop again after a week to pick up the glass. Before returning to his car, he inadvertently asks Asako for a rendezvous. Asako stares in utter amazement.
Kamimura regrets the carelessness of his own behavior. Still, he receives a call from Asako a few days later. Kamimura dreams that night once again of Charlotte…
