This is definitely Nakajima's best performance so far (it's amazing how MUCH he's grown as an actor the past 2 or so years!), Suda was amazing as usual, the cinematography and the colouring was amazing and the story itself was absorbing (even if the second half is slightly less good). 9/10 from me!! If this doesn't win some awards this year, I'll be shocked!

The only downsides are: Nakajima still can't cry-act, read more and the reason for him (< this is NOT a spoiler before y'all start!) dying is stupid but everything else was phenomenal!

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

it's not that they're that similar - completely different you may say, but there's a similarity (hard to grasp similarity that I personally feel in there) and if I said what I think that is, it'd be spoilers ... that kind of thing
somehow, I'm sorry, but I still recommend each to go after the other
..especially if you've seen neither

    A plot twist you won't see very often. Brilliant idea very original and I like how the atmosphere turns in the middle of the movie. Strong performances by the cast and definitely Nakajima's breakthrough performance. But that plot twist is what made this to me so special. That feeling when you've watched something good that you pause the movie to gather yourself, just what the hell was that? it is freaking brililant.

    10/10

    The story was very interesting and well executed. There's other positive things I want to say about this film, but I can't quite put it into words yet. In my opinion though, it's a very good film.

    I'll just keep it in my PTW list, hanging on to the hope that one day someone will sub it... :(

    the poster and the description made the movie unappealing. at first, I thought it would be boring. but there's a more deeper plot to it than what it says in the description. it's actually a slice of life movie with a hint of tragedy. but this is the first slice of life movie i've ever watched that has a plot twist that seems so natural. for a slice of life plot twist, it didn't involve any kind of crime-related or fantasy-related kind of plot twist especially what you see in japanese stories. would recommend to anyone who enjoys slice of life and anyone who wants to be mindblowned.

    haven't read the manga btw.
    watched this movie in the emirates plane with subs (and I regretted it that I watched this movie 2 hours before the plane landed) so idk where to actually find this movie with eng subs in the internet.
