between good and sin
24 August 2009 | by shi612See all my reviews

At first, this film looks like an ordinary story of a doctor in a village, but it is quite different.

The police detectives are not smart, but through their investigation, audiences gradually figure out the depth of the issue behind the incident. Being caught up in the story, you understand what issue is really asked, and you will be confused between false and truth, good and sin, runaround and confession, and what is allowed and what is not.

The structure of the plot is well made. But I would like to know more about the background, like why the man became a doctor.

Performances are generally good. I was particularly impressed by Yo Kimiko. She makes a uniquely nuanced performance, like she did at 'Okuribito'. The nurse has a key role in this film, which Yo did very well.
