this movie just couldn't make it
I don't know if it's because it's short .
the story should have been divided into two , one about his family & one about his thoughts .
also they didn't give me a chance to live his misery and sympthy for him
I don't know why the rush
I liked the story & I wish it will be done again in more detailed and better read more way..
have to mention I loved the music ..
I think the actors tried their best anyway.

I think this movie is not for an average drama lover. Many would skip over this movie after just reading the summary while some would drop this movie after seeing the beginning.

I admit this movie is not the most stimulating for people interested in hormone-crazed types drama characters but this movie is truly a breathtaking film if you sit down to watch it without any pre-conceived notions or expectations.

I think read more in this type of film different people will have different perspectives of this movie. Some may think that this is a movie showing political revolution or economic oppression or any other possibility. For me it was the journey of a man from a life of familial bliss to going through depression and possibly hallucinations and how he coped with it.

This is truly an intriguing film for the creative souls and art lovers. It may also stimulate you if you are into philosophy or human psychology. But fair warning, you will definitely not finish the 72 minutes with a sense of closure. For me Toshiaki Toyoda has worked magic and the cast, story, music and performance are all amazing and applause worthy.

    For me this movie is a masterpiece, I experienced it in such a powerful way with strongest emotions, Eita and Yosuke are my all time fav. actors, words CAN NOT describe their brilliance. I loved their interactions in this movie and sentences which engraved in my heart forever. ♥

    I loved this movie even if it was a bit weird and complicating. I recommend it.

    There is truth in this movie i wish they will make more of this quality. It got me thinking -are we really free to live how life should be? I rated it an 8/10 because there are certain issues im totally against. :)

    I watched it seemingly with poor eng. translation bc half hes thoughts didnt make sence and half was some poorly tied bits of citates from well known people.i really hope that original text has more to tell. Acting, camerawork and soundtrack are good. So, if you dont understand japanese make sure before watching that subtitles are made by people who really well know both languages or you end just wondering like me - about what this movie is? is this really message what creators wanted make? i try find better translation.

    Brilliant and artistic! I think you can learn a lot from this movie when it comes to trusting in society.
    But I agree with What2Watch, I don't think everyone will appreciate this movie, it was quite special. It's either a movie you don't understand and don't like or a movie that you understand mostly and like quite a lot.

    Sitting at just 1hr 12mins, don't expect some grand plot. If that's what you're looking for, you probably will finish this with disappointment.
    Rather, this focuses upon closely examining a character--Ryoichi Kakiuchi. It's short and artistically beautiful with a brilliant cast.

    Honestly, I think it's one of those pieces that just won't appeal to everyone.

      Where did you watch it? I can't find it anywhere, and I don't think the DVD is out either! I love both actors so this is a must-watch for me!
