Quotes

Dr. Nakamura: Forgive me for asking, but what are you doing in Yanaka Vilage? Shouldn't you be somewhere closer to the front lines?
Michiko Ueda: Call me a drop-out if you want, Dr. Nakamura. I don't mind.
Dr. Nakamura: I'm sorry. I didn't mean that.
Michiko Ueda: It's all right. I don't think there's anything wrong with it ... In Tokyo I was always trying to be everyone's idea of perfect and at the same time live up to my own ideals. I couldn't take it.

life is beautiful
5 July 2003 | by (Kumamoto, Japan) – See all my reviews

A couple moves to husband's home village, where he was born as a son of a farmer. Husband is a novelist who won an award ten years ago, but since then nothing has been printed. Wife was a doctor of a leading edge hospital in Tokyo, but had been so busy that she had a panic disorder. In the village she works as an only doctor in the village. This movie describes how the couple are "healed" in this village community, particularly "Oume-san", a 96 years old woman living in a tiny temple of Amitabha Buddha, and Sayuri, a young woman who lost voice but writes for Oume-san. Actual lead is Oume-san. She is lively, frank, hardworking, and simple. This is a story of Oume-san, and the life in beautiful four seasons in Japanese village. The plot is fairly simple, except death of the teacher Kouda and healing of Sayuri. The movie seems to tell a single message through these contrasted episodes.
