Very average movie, plus good acting
23 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

First off, let me say that I'm an Okada Junichi fan. That being said, this movie was average, if not below average. The plot has no commendable twist or turn, the motif old and not creative at all, and there's not much to "learn" from this movie that makes you go "Ahhh". Like other reviews on this board, I have to agree, "What is this movie trying to say?". For me, the theme of loneliness of a 35 year old woman was way better portrayed through the character of Kimiko and her relationship with Koji. I have no idea how the main couple could carry the "35-year-old lonely woman" theme. The interaction between her and her husband, plus her "loneliness" is just not seen nearly enough! One would think Toru and Shifumi love each other because they both are very good-looking! Um, so, this movie is not that good in my opinion. However, every one completed their part very well. Kuroki Hitomi-san was very beautiful and classy, Okada Junichi is expressive with his eyes and voice as usual, but my favorite will have to be Terajima Shinobu-san, who plays Kimiko. Not only does her character has depth, but her acting was good on its own. Through her, and her only, I see the possible loneliness of a woman who's trapped in a boring life, with a husband she doesn't love (or has grown out of love for him), and who yearns for something more than just the everyday life cooking in the kitchen and doing housework from dawn to dusk.
