“Happily Ever After” (117MIN, 2007)
Directed by Yukihiko Tsutsumi
Based on the comic strip series by Yoshiie Gouda, this film is a visually striking, dark comedy that follows the devoted wife Yukie (Miki Nakatani) and her unemployed ex-gangster husband Isao (Hiroshi Abe).
Isao’s uncontrollable temper often results in the dinner table being overturned and their meal on the floor.
Everyone advises Yukie to leave Isao, but her love for him is unconditional because he was the one who initially saved her from misery with his unconditional love.
