The movie is good and story is simple yet captivating. Another has complained that the movie is hard to follow or "inexplicable" as they put it but honestly I don't know why they had such difficulty with it. Maybe they were watching a different movie or didn't have the subtitles turned on? The story here is very simple and easy to follow even compared to other films. I am North American too like that other viewer and the story was so simple it would be hard not to follow. The only thing I can think of is that that other person maybe was using drugs or had brain damage which could have made it hard for them to understand. But they complain that the woman is called "doctor" throughout the film and wonder why. Obviously it is because she is a doctor! But why is her husband also called doctor? Because he's a doctor too! Sometimes doctors marry other doctors. It's not that hard to understand. Maybe they will be better to watch a simpler Hollywood movie but this one was very good for me. Beautiful little film that also makes you think.
