Review

We see a newly wed couple-Ryo and Nazz. One day they suddenly get to share each other´s physical pain. For example, if Ryo hits his head against the wall, Natsu shares the same pain. But this innocent couple believes that this strange condition is due to their true love. And even Natsu´s brother considers them to be the ideal couple. But when Natsu´s pregnancy puts Ryo into horrors of death, the true nature of the couple´s love reveals itself and both begin to look love in the face. The film shows various sides and ways of love that we see in life as they are-a love that shares physical pain, an unrequited love, love between the same sexes, a violent love brought on by attachment, love only for sex, etc The director who believes that the essence of love and beauty lies in extreme subjectivity, places strange characters all over the film to make his point. And he begins to look at how their relationships begin to collide because of love. He does so by sometimes standing up close, and sometimes within a distance. The warm perspective of the director makes these strange characters suddenly become a part of our lives. And when the last credits scroll from the screen-o-we realize that this film is a simple comedy about us who live only for love, but don´t know what it is.
