Cries of the livestock in the heavy mist
30 June 2010 | by (Kumamoto, Japan) – See all my reviews

This movie has a lasting effect in middle aged men's heart. A love story between an ordinary truck driver and a young woman of a suburban motel. The beginning of their love was pretty simple. Triggered by an adventurous behavior of the woman, who was raised in loveless home, the man soon fell too deep in a love affair. He has been too often absent from his home in Paris, where his wife was always preoccupied with the children, and frustrated with the husband. A little secret came into the void of his heart, and it became an incident.

If you are a middle-aged man, I believe you would be fascinated by such an encounter, and you would nod sympathetically with the man's behavior. Men often are in a dilemma between work and family. The husband is dedicated to work only for his family. But the wife does not see him in work, and she can not accept him if he always puts home affair second. If there is a woman who adores him at his working, why not wander from the right path? And if a consequence of the affair demands some decision, why not going on?

Such incidents may happen here and there, as the title 'People of No Importance' implies. Its Japanese title is 'The Headlight'. This is also a good title. In the movie, the headlight of the truck is very effectively used. But the more impressive tool in the movie is the cries of the livestock in the heavy mist at the last scene.
