moving story on marriage in Japan reality..
In 2014, I was told by a friend, a Japanese lawyer, that the divorce rate in Japan, particularly Tokyo is pretty high. Even for the elder couples, after their children legally grown-up, lots of couples get divorced as they feel that there is no love among them from the first, its only children that bounded them (as mentioned by Jun's boss in a scene).
This movie is a moving-romantic-touching ways in portraying these facts of marriage in Japan. The acts were all perfect and natural. The script is excellent in telling various problems in nice and slow pace. Even the "mistranslation" mentioned by other reviewer, I believe it was chosen to telling the audience that love or being in loved is not identical with the three words only, but it can translated into sooooo many various ways..
