[ Story ]
Yukisada Isao, director of the mega-hit pure love film,
CRYING OUT LOVE, IN THE CENTER OF THE WORLD
(Sekai no Chushin de, Ai wo Sakebu), has turned Nakatani Mayumi’s play of the same name into a film. Solid actors have been chosen to play a couple who have grown tired of each other, creating an entertaining film for mature audiences with a mixture of laughter and sadness. Shunsuke (Toyokawa Etsushi) is a lazy womanizer and a lousy husband who is suddenly thrown off balance one day by his health-freak wife Sakura (Yakushimaru Hiroko), when she tells him she is leaving him. Upon losing his wife, Shunsuke realizes for the first time how much she meant to him…

It ‘s true that you should never be in a hurry. I was about to turn off the TV, bored by what sounded like yet another, granted, film about a couple in crisis, with her husband artist who lost his songs and his neglected wife, when things changed suddenly. The result is certainly not a masterpiece but a watchable film at least until the end. Other non-narrative, not to spoil the little surprise that reserve. Theatrical films, takes place almost everything in a room with five characters. Dramatization discreet but with some decline in the dull and the tearjerker. The overvalued Yukisada Isao, after the significant Go and the blockbuster Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu still does not find the measure. Good test of actors. In particular, Renji Ishibashi, seen in dozens of yakuza or detective films, is delightful in the role of an elderly transvestite.
