Don’t read further if you haven’t watched the movie.

There's nothing special happens throughout the movie, at least from my perspective. That being said, our real life is just like that, isn't it? No matter how deeply you feel sorrow, life goes on, and not many people around you notice your pain. Everything is so subtle, quiet, and calm at the surface.

Moreover, I noticed that there was no music throughout the movie. No incidental music even at the climax where the protagonist's sorrow had to be depicted vividly. Every sound I heard in the movie was the one from everyday life. Realizing that, I thought I found the reason why the production(or the director) had made this movie to be a black-and-white motion picture. The purpose might have been leading audiences to feel the sounds more real, by having their sense concentrate more on listening rather than looking.

This is an antithesis to Hollywood style entertainment movies. In a sense, this is a pursuit of the ultimate reality.

I was impressed by a scene, that was almost the last part of the movie. I was intrigued by the fact that you are overwhelmed by natural sounds when redundant music is minimized. The sounds of waves in that scene were really scary. After that, spontaneously I burst into tears in seeing the next scene.

When you see the end-title crawl, you may think that the attraction of this movie has oozed through into your mind. I think I can recommend it to you, anyway.
