good and real if you know how to watch it
3 February 2015 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

This is another way to see this film. shows the life of complicated women (included the female dog, as well mentioned by Tsuma in a part of the film) and their suffered men. Shows how problematic are women (and relationships), and the Man, if wants to be with them has to endure anything . This is evident in many or all parts of the film. The fact is that no woman ( because of its role in our species ) bear virtually none of those acts ; especially on the part of the role of Tsuma . She is emotionally unbalanced , otiose and without major pretensions or projects person, so it is always uncomfortable; above all, with her husband, who try to please her (and to continue with her, as she is the woman he loves ) There are many cases in the world in which a Man has to play the role of circus clown trying to entertain somehow the other unbalanced part. With a minimum of what supports Muko , any woman in a big part of the world had ended the relationship. The film is simple but well made , although near the end solves things rather easily. It has something magical realism. Photography is adequate , the main actress works a fine paper and is very well chosen . Muko s actor , I've seen in other movies and still is somewhat "green".; the other actors are correct.
