ABOUT THE FILM

A lonely older woman in search of romance answers newspaper ads and arranges dates. But she always gets tired of the men she meets and wonders why she should be alive. The music makes this an especially beautiful film.

わかりやすいといえばいいのでしょうか。共感できる部分もありますが・・・。なんとなく単純すぎるところがもう少し興味がもてませんでした。

What is essential in life? Romance or finding yourself and your path in life?
