Based on the novel "Nanimono" by Ryo Asai (published November 30, 2012 by Shinchosha). "Nanimono" is the winner of the 148th Naoki Award in 2012.
"Somebody" is not a romantic movie, do not expect a romance, it's about friendship based on everyday reality, with a touch of subtle humor. A quiet film, with its well-aimed plot and clear characters, is enough to make it impact. In my opinion the best movies are read more those that you have no expectations. Those that you watch why you liked the poster or the synopsis but it surprises with the quality.
The performance is a little lower than expected, but it is not a movie that really asks a lot of the actors as well as the soundtrack and cinematography that are simple but objective, delivered what the premise wants, what should in fact be delivered, no more Than that.
Generally speaking, "Somebody" manages to achieve its goal of entertainment without trying to be something else. Sometimes that's all a movie needs; Everyday simplicity!

    tbh i was looking forward to this movie, with the great cast and all that, but turned out to be quite disappointing :/ it tries too hard to be deep in certain moments and just plain confusing in others

    I hope Yamada's character will have more significance here and not just an actor who will help sell this movie.
