As the subtitle “January” comes onto the screen, a man and a woman are seen walking around a city early morning. They’re walking, talking about inane things, having a typical lovers’ exchange. Is this a love story? Subtitles which say “February” and “March” come on and the ensuing situations are mixed up, not following a chronological order with the audience falling into a slight confusion. Despite the risk of becoming rather showy, the film touches on the core of values we desperately wish for, depicted in a series of inane and everyday situations. The film shows that the attempt to make a chance meeting into a meaningful relationship and all the various acts to achieve that may seem meaningless to others but to each and every one of us, those acts can be a vital goal in life, something verging on fateful. It also shows that all the passionate desires that fall under the category of love are in fact not so far away from the childish wishes and that is why so many of us are forever never reach proficient level of achieving those desires. The film, made up of little, everyday incidents progresses on while arousing a sense of curiosity on the part of the audience and as it comes to an ending which is different from its conclusion in the grand sense of the word, it leaves within us a genuine sense of afterglow as it shows a picture of someone’s life, not so different from our own. By twisting the narrative structure, the film’s unique attempt leaves a different kind of impression of sensibility in us.
