Synopsis
What happens when a newly wed bride falls for another woman?

My thoughts ...

-- Although it is not one of those movies that will wow you away ... I have to say that the director/script writer/actors did a good job in trying to provide depth/complexity to the characters/situations (such that it becomes much more credible than most other films) ... the film manages to depict dilemmas, that decisions are never easy, the complexity of relationship, etc ... after all, real life is complicated ...

-- i also want to add that the relationship between the old couple (i.e., parents) are well crafted too ... they make it even more credible ...

-- two speeches to note
(i) particularly the line by the husband (when he chose to leave ...)
(ii) the father's advice to his daughter (somewhen near the end) ... wow ... very "food for thought" ...

-- if i need to nitpick, it may be the ending ... a bit too Hollywood ...

Conclusion
Can watch ... only because the characters are given depth/complexity ...

PS: wow ... i never know that there is a "flower/plant" to suggest breakup ...
