Scene 07

INT. VALENTINE'S ROOM - NIGHT

The black branches of a Japanese woodprinted tree become visible in the previously empty picture frame on the wall in Valentine's room. Pink (cherry) blossom appears at the end of the branches.

The last breath of Valentine causes the blossom to depart from the tree and float through air. The stream of pink blossom petals crosses the dictionary and makes the pages turn over.

The page opened shows the crucial explanation of the Japanese character.

Shinj├╗ ; Japanese ritual love suicide.
