Despite its absurd title, this movie delivers some deep thoughts about the idea of marraige. Just like most Japanese productions, it’s simple characters help set a realistic tone that makes the audience relate to what is happening and there are several scenes that leave you with a big idiotic smile. It is a cute story that shares what marriage truly means while leaving the viewer to contemplate about what is actually required to make the relationship between two people last . This sweet story is best to watch on a boring day and I definitely recommend it to whoever is contemplating about watching it.

deep meaning behind marriage life

if you don't have something else to watch, watch this! I know the titles didn't make any sense to many of us but trust me, it's really a good movie. This movie portrayed a deep meaning behind the marriage life. the story doesn't carried away like at first, I thought that his wife will play dead all along way till the end of the story they are not! I love how Chie said that in this life there is three things that gather around us, up, down and maybe. This movie also remind us about as a couples, love should go with the flows and be more laid back without forcing other partner to be doing something that can make them stress out.

Cast: I think it really good consider that I enjoy their acting, their chemistry seems all natural and not feel forceful.

Music: I don't pay much attention but some of the background sounds doesn't suits the certain mood o the story.

Rewatch it: Totally! I maybe rewatch it with my friends or my family.

[Btw sorry for my bad English]

Director Toshio Lee's latest Japanese comedy, despite his intriguing premises of having a wife who pretends to be dead every time her husband returns home, is really at the heart of the modern marriage. What I liked about the film is the way it addresses different aspects of a marriage and the importance of communication and understanding. Everything seems pretty basic on paper goes much deeper and engages with the audience as a result. The comedy has the power to penetrate the emotional arena as we laugh and weep with the characters played excellently by the young Nana Eikura and the firm Ken Yasuda.

Maybe I had many expectations from "When I Get Home, My Wife Always Pretends to be Dead". But, part of the odd "murder" cases, the story was just okay. It was blunt at some points as well. The main message that this movie wanted to come through was sweet and very moving, as the couple's relationship, even though wierd, it was realistic. The genre of this movie was slice of life after all. But, the movie lacked intensity and so the story didn't feel as good as it was. The performances, however, were good. So four out of ten.
