It’s been a while since the last time I
did a movie review found a beautiful random movie on Youtube worth to write a review. And this time I found a very touching movie called The Japanese Wife.
The first thing I love about this movie is how the actor and actress are using their own English accents – Indians use English in their Hindi accents and Japanese use their Japanglish. They didn’t try to look like they mastered their English and as someone whose English is not my mother tongue – I found this brilliant.
This unique love story started a bit slow – how Miyagi, a young Japanese girl, made a pen pal with Snehamoy, an Indian boy, through a magazine. It was amazing how years gone by and they were still good friends – this story line somehow relates so much for me as I still have few pen pals whom I met years back and sometimes we still chat via app. Only on this movie they don’t have smart phones.
The story continues from exchanging gifts from each other countries to exchanged marriage vows and how they are everyday struggling by not seeing each other and finally there were the “third party” who was supposed to challenge their marriage.
I didn’t expect the sad ending though. But there you go. It was surely not easy to have long distance relationship. Every little things are challenges. And all challenges will eventually not bring happiness.
This is 2010 movie with 84% score from rotten tomatoes and 7.6/10 from imdb. For me this movie deserves 🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸 out of 5.
