Hänelle joka kuihtuneita kukkia kastelee (Part 2)

Second part of my work “Hänelle joka kuihtuneita kukkia kastelee” (For her who waters emaciated flowers).

This line is actually one of my favorite lines from movie “Hana-bi” by Kitano Takeshi. I really like how it sounds in Finnish and I think the translation went somehow like this. This appears in a scene where the main character’s terminally ill wife is giving water to dead plants and is interrupted by a passersby who asks her something along these lines, “are you stupid? Who waters emaciated plants?” Takeshi beats crap out of the guy.

Flowers never lose their gracefulness even after their death.
