I went to the movie alone, and watched Sazanami. (45 years) .
I prefer the title of Sazanami this time. Sometimes the Japanese titles sound strange, however this time the title of 45 years is "direct", on the other hand Sazanami is very emotional title.
Sazanami means "ripple".
The mind of the main character has rippled since a letter reached to her husband.
It was a good movie.
In my opinion I prefer the movie which finishes with smile, this movie --- unfortunately it is finished with rippling (it doesn't show a concrete ending.)
And I realized 45 year marriage sometimes is broken by a sudden "small" event.
And I knew a culture.
In America or Europe? senior couples celebrate their 40-year marriage with "friends" not their family. In Japan we have KINKONSHIKI which is a celebration to celebrate 50-year marriage. However usually it is celebrated by their family. ( I don't know whether my daughters will celebrate our KINKONSHIKI in 20 years.)
GINKONSHIKI is a celebration to celebrate 25-year marriage. We didn't celebrate it, and probably my daughter didn't know when it came.
