Netflix announces a suspenseful romantic comedy film ‘In Love and Deep Water’ by acclaimed screenwriter Yuji Sakamoto.

A murder mystery on a luxurious cruise ship that all witnesses deny seeing except for a devoted butler. A woman who claims that her husband is on the verge of cheating with the butler’s wife wants to stop the cruise and return to Japan.

Set on the MSC Bellissima, a massive luxury cruise ship headed for the Aegean sea, In Love and Deep Water follows the adventures and growing feelings between Suguru the butler and Chizuru the mysterious woman as they try to uncover the murder-mystery on the ship.

Penned by veteran TV screenwriter Yuji Sakamoto (Tokyo Love Story), the comedy delivers romance and suspense on an unprecedented scale.

“I’ve always wanted to make a film like that but I never thought I would be able to,” says Sakamoto. “With this film, the dream I had given up on has come true.”

The film is headlined by Ryo Yoshizawa as Suguru and Aoi Miyazaki as Chizuru, and is expected to be a feast for the senses.

“I believe viewers will be able to spend a dream-like time with lovely music, beautiful costumes, and charming people brought to life by the ultimate cast, beginning with Ryo Yoshizawa and Aoi Miyazaki,” Sakamoto adds.

The star-studded cast also includes:

  • Yoh Yoshida as the recently appointed captain Hatsumi
