Looking for a True Fiancee (指輪をはめたい, Yubiwa o Hametai) is a 2011 Japanese film directed by Yuki Iwata and based on a novel by Takami Itō.[1]



Russell Edwards of Variety criticized the film, saying: "Iwata lacks the timing needed to make this romantic comedy work."[2]

Mark Schilling of The Japan Times said, "Iwata evidences a surreal visual flair in the early scenes especially, as in the dreamy shot of revolving shadows resolving into spinning ice skaters to injured Teruhiko's woozy eyes."[3]
