How does one reconcile reality and delusion when the illusion of love is at hand? A rather wound up and repressed Japanese woman takes a leap. An interesting twist in a woman’s search for love. What crawled under my skin was how Japanese culture was portrayed…emotionally repressed, and the ‘awkwardness’ that ensues. I felt like I was in Japan again… Although topically a comedy, the underlying theme is loss. The actors do a magnificent job.
Even Shakespeare would be proud of this dark humoured tragedy.
“Good bye”…..and the life is gone.
In the case of Setsuko, in her mind it already had….and then John. Because she felt passed by, Johns teaching techniques created a sense of warmth to a lost soul and Setsuko’s emotions flirted with love masqueraded by lust of a meaningful life.
The script and direction were exquisite as was the acting performances. None could be faulted.
The only reason I am not giving 10/10 is because there were a couple of goofs but I am a nerd so I am always hunting for faults.
This is a wonderful example of beautiful cinema. GO SEE IT!!
