Exaggerated, then understated, then...ohmygod....
1 February 2015 | by (Bloomington, IN) – See all my reviews

I will tread carefully here, so as not to give anything away.

Naoko has just returned with her young daughter to the village of her birth and childhood, after a (presumably nasty) divorce. She tries to fit in, although it seems that just about everyone in this little burg has one problem or another. Her two friends from childhood, Tomochan and Mitchan, are no exceptions...but something doesn't quite make sense.

She starts, or resumes, a relation with a local high school teacher, which however is conducted in secrecy and shadows, up to a point. Tomochan and Mitchan seem supportive, but again, something is odd here.

Stick with it--with the foul-mouthed middle-aged women who frequent the beauty salon ("Permanent nobara"--the "permanent wild rose" that is a metaphor for Naoko herself), the crazy old man who takes a chainsaw to utility poles, causing frequent power outages, and to many other crazy goings-on besides.

We didn't see it coming. You won't either.
