At first sight, what a quick break in a motion film! There's a pregnant woman letting out shortly by herself like a poet, but leaves its remains to those of others, and so-called to this world with echoes.
I couldn't sleep while watching this like other films when fatigued with daily lives. Cause there's actually something to rethink & rewind my ordinary expectations as it was.
What is those? I asked myself and made me write this review for me and others not yet experienced like me. She, Mitsuko is somewhat far away from the etiquette built by our system to maintain it in peace. Nevertheless, she doesn't throw a stone onto the system, only talks herself and replies with compassion to the encounters and neighbors in her world.
Our lives aren't often 'those', in which maybe you and I want to be painted with our touch and colors. If so, watch this film for you to realize yours by her language, gesture, and co-existence with neighbors for the time being
