FilmSnob -- They are definitely still missing Tokyo at the end of the movie. My point is that if their circumstances change -- and they learn to appreciate life in the hinterland -- they may feel somewhat differently in 2-3 years. We don't know what Chishu Ryu's character (and his wife) felt about his transfer when it first happened (but maybe I'm forgetting something).

The end of Hen in the Wind is problematic -- but I think it is an important and valuable film nonetheless.
