| good and real if you know how to watch it
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.
