The key concept came up to me from the film is "life". Husband survived due to unwanted accidental landing from the suicide attack of "Kamikaze" in WW2 where the nation treated young lives as consumables. Wife has been depending her life on artificial dialysis for years. Both have something special in terms of "life", and respect them each other. The acting performances of Takakura Ken and Tanaka Yuko are outstanding. Unfortunately, others perform poorly. Some episodes, the stowaways for example, are meaningless. I rate 7 of 10.
