Too many plot holes, too much over-the-top theatrics
28 November 2005 | by (Bloomington, IN) – See all my reviews

This won a best film award in Japan, so we thought it might be worth watching. As it turned out, it wasn't a total waste of time, but quite a lot in this story strained credulity, sometimes verging on the absurd. And there was too much overwrought acting packed into two hours...particularly given that the Japanese are not generally given to emotional outbursts.

One of the better things about the film was a serious attempt to come to grips with Alzheimer's disease and the human tragedy it can entail. There are a few moments of humor here and there, and not all of the acting is bad. But overall, there are many better choices among Japanese dramas and mysteries.
