Questions Unanswered

1. How the plans of Rei changed at the last moment when they were both going to turn themselves in?

It is revealed that the coins Rei found were from a hotel 10 years back where they met last. Nanae tells her to split the check and the coins were half of Rei’s contribution. That’s when she realized Nanae also loved her and the plans were changed.

2. Why at last, Rei turned herself in?

When Rei asked her what happened to her in the past when they were in high school art class and the reason she being unhappy, she replied that that was the day when her mother left and her family got divided and she was wondering that she could ever have a happy life. Maybe that’s when Rei realized that starting a relationship on a bad note after a murder wouldn’t be great and she should pay for what she did. And that’s why she called the police.

3. Who was the bad guy here, Rei or Nanae?

This question cannot be answered as it’s very complicated. Both of them were transferring their kind of love into an obsession, Nanae just wanted to kill her husband after what he did to him and Rei wanted to be with her First love. This made them think only with their heart. And that’s the reason they seemed mentally ill in the whole movie. They wanted to achieve what they dreamt of for many years. And that’s what happened but the consequences were the things they didn’t think of!

At last, Nanae kept saying she will wait for her while police officers took her to jail. So what are your thoughts on it, hit them in the comments section.
