Happy Hour

Another movie from the Japanese Film Festival - I would have gone to see many more, but there were not enough hours in the days.
Be warned. Happy Hour is over 5 hours long. But worth every minute! It's the story of four women's friendship, and how what happens in one woman's marriage provokes the others to think about their own lives. Some scenes are long, but every moment counts.

My thoughts when the credits rolled were:
  1. Japanese women want more out of life than what's traditionally on offer.
  2. Japanese men haven't got a clue.
If you've got 5 hours to spare, Happy Hour is well worth the time! And if you understand the ending, let me know! Because it did confuse me.
