it's very deadly and absolutely out of control. when you fall for a man or woman, it's just like a sudden addiction, the lust and passion, the sexual desire are so strong that all the existing relationship, families, kids...anything would suddenly meaningless. it's an incurable blindness and nothing can be reasoned or rationalized by logic. this film just told us such a crazy obsession so destructive and dangerous. when you fall for a man and woman so suddenly with such huge impact, the morality, faithfulness and loyalty to your old existing relationship will be suddenly bounced like a bad check, the existing old checking and saving bank accounts related and honored to that check seem to abruptly become empty or overdrawn. an affair, an adultery would be just like that person suddenly decides to open a brand new bank account to another banking system. a regularly taking care of bonsai is suddenly forgotten. we have seen so many cases like this in our daily lives, and so many movies also portrayed such incidents. and this film is a great example to show you how a normal woman suddenly lost her marbles and so mysteriously fell for another man without any obvious reasons. a very weird case but in the mean times, seems to be also so understandable.
