When I Get Home, My Wife Always Pretends to be Dead

So the title is a bit of an attention grabber.  Underneath the title  title is a more traditional yet rather quirky tale of love and the struggles we all encounter in relationships.  The story centers around a couple that is at the three year mark of their relationship.  This is important because they agreed that at three years they would reassess their commitment and decide if it was worth continuing (in a monologue early in the film the male relates marriage to running a businss).   There are metaphors about but at the center of the film is a real beauty.  I really enjoyed it.
