This is a typical silent tale of greed and stupidity. The principle character, with whom we are supposed to empathize, has his head firmly planted in the clouds. He gets run over and fall in love with the woman who hit him. He becomes obsessed with an image and goes on to do a series of idiotic things. He assumes that what is said to him is the truth. An innocent gets some sympathy, but when the fog lifts, he can't expect a lot of sympathy. The film is nicely crafted and works fine, but I just couldn't get over the rashness of the guy.
