"The Eighth Day"

"Rebirth" or "The Eighth Day" (2011) - Yôkame no Semi 八日目の蝉 by Izuru Narushima is a Japanese movie based on the book by Mitsuyo Kakuta.

I have seen the TV version of this story which was aired on NHK by the same title last year.
The story is about a woman who lost her baby by the request of her lover who is a family man, kidnaps his baby. She raises the girl for five years which was the happiest time of her life until it ends...

The TV version was so well done, I loved it. I am not sure how they fit the whole 5 years into some 90 mins movie. I hope I can see it on DVD very soon.
