Very beautiful landscapes
I liked the movie even though it was a little sad without very good reason. A love watching foreign films, so I can see the different ways of life. The most wonderful thing of this film, is that people don't react as you're use too, "the western" way of life. The relationship established between the two main characters is so elegant, funny, and "civilized". There are a lot of beautiful landscapes, beautiful scenes of trees in bloom, which reminds the engraving and painting of oriental culture, as you may be able too see in the beginning credits.
The main actress is very agreeable, and the actor is quiet nice. Another nice thing is that when they talk about the past they are the same actors, and no need to explain is it in a poetic way. It's very enchanting to watch the modern Japan with some very traditional details like the houses and the kimonos. It's a window to see a different culture in a natural way. There are so many recordable moments, and human nature is always present. The other thing a liked the most was, that besides it's a drama it's presented as something so smooth, without shouting and futile desperation .
