Dolls takes puppeteering as its overriding motif -- mainly, the sort practiced in Bunraku doll theater performances -- establishing every phase of his movie with a story provided with the aid of the puppets and their masters, which relates thematically to the movement provided by way of the stay characters. Chief amongst those tales is the tale of Matsumoto (Hidetoshi Nishijima) and Sawako (Miho Kanno), a younger couple whose relationship is about to be damaged aside by the previous's dad and mom, who've insisted their son participate in an arranged marriage to his boss' daughter. He to begin with is of the same opinion, causing the unstable Sawako to be dedicated to a psychiatric hospital. When he leaves his new bride on the altar to keep Sawako, but, he realizes that she's so incapable of worrying for herself that she needs to be tied to him with a pink rope. Inextricably sure, the two wander thru Japan, encountering others along the way who have similarly overlooked love for different, more fleeting pleasures: fame, electricity, cash.
