dmol's rating of the film Tony Takitani

A former designer gives up her job to be a housewife and washes her husband's car while he sits and watches - then she dies for her designer clothes (??!!!). Is it just me who sees something seriously wrong with this? I kept waiting for a twist that never came, indulging instead in Sakamoto's beautiful melodies of loss and emptiness. Good direction, too.
