The cast is excellent and I'm dying to watch it, but must finish reading the novel first.

@Random chan: All of what mikku has said is true. The downside to this movie is that Ootani is a truly TRULY bad person and that the plot moves very slowly. It's neither here nor there. But there are some exciting and fascinating scenes (not in an action movie sense), and Ootani is as true to form a writer as you can get in fiction and movies; emotionally unstable, wishy-washy, introverted, stubborn, selfish, drunk. I think I liked this simply because I identified with his character quite a bit (being a writer). Besides the content, the movie itself is beautifully made. I love seeing movies set around this era because there's something nostalgic even for a non-Japanese person to find about the juxtaposition between compact, old-fashioned neighbourhoods with more modern structures, as well as between kimono and western wear. Post-war, pre-bubble Japan really was a lovely time! Overall it was very pleasing to the eye. I especially liked the director's sort of "tunnelling" style of narrow shots.

@random chan: i like it so much because it is not the fairy-tale- kind of love-story.. its rather the opposite. it makes you rethink about the words weakness and strength.Sticking to one person despite his/her character is something that is fading in todays society(although this is quite an extreme way of showing it)..we tend to give up on people very fast when things dont turn the way we expect. Asano Tafanobu's character is not very likeable but his acting skill is just awesome. And Matsu Takako's character Sachi speaks for itself (truly admirable and beautiful). I started watching this because i like everything i ve seen of Tsumabuki Satoshi but ended up becoming a Asano Tadanobu fan too ;)

@mikku77: thanks, I wanted to watch it but I didn't know if it's worth it. Can you tell me why it was good? Beside the fact Asano Tadanobu and Tsutsumi Shinichi take part in it :P.

This story is all about the devotedness of Sachi. It shows how she was able to overcome the cruelty of her husband, trying to live on and most importantly, her ability to forgive -- "Being a monster is just fine."
The ending was very good. The film had something special about it. The acting performances were of course well done. And the whole setting, plotline and so on.
Definitely worth the watch, I'd say.
