This is the story about a war. A woman waits for her husband. He goes to battlefield. She really worries about her husband. She has nightmare again and again. The nightmares are about husband's fighting. Her husband is killed again and again in her dream. One day, her husband comes back to her. She feels easy. However, she look an ear. That is enemy's one. She was surprised. She think he is not former him.
This story is too difficult for me. However I really think about this movie. Why is she does not want to touch by her husband? It is difficult program. They love each other and she waits for him for a long time and meet him? The war is so sad. The war is makes him that he is not former him. The woman may be sick of mental.
Please watch this movie, and think about this movie and war.
