ace Hitomi Kuroki was splendid as the Mother-in-Law. I really felt for her. While I thought Saki Aibu did a decent job and is certainly attractive, her character wasn't very nice. Or smart. Or empathetic. Or honest. Which made it reeeally hard for me to warm up to her. I never really did, I guess. Because even in the end I just kept thinking that she brought a world of pain into that family. Both new pain and ripping open old wounds as well. And her attitude about doing so appeared to be pretty laissez faire, which made it worse. The two male leads are decent enough. But again, the father-in-laws character is not exactly a paragon of virtue. So his actions play counterpoint to the unfolding story. The son is almost a McGuffin in the film. In the end, it is a good movie to watch. Some really good performances. Especially Hitomi Kuroki. I had never really noticed her until seeing her as the Director in GTO 2012. She's really good in this.
