What made this movie watchable?

The story line… it kept me hanging on until the very end.

If you are a very curious person like me when it comes to mind boggling stuff, you are definitely one to hang on till the last scene even though this movie has a lot of draggy moments. The camera tends to focus on everything and anything, but then at the end of the movie, I read more got to understand the significance of those lens focus. The cast were great, I like Miyazaki's character as Mari, I thought the characters in this movie did not seem complicated but I got that all wrong. The lead actor was a bit too good for this movie though, I felt that he could have done better on other films, his acting here was a bit wasted. But still, he was awesome and brought his own character to life. A person who sees a different perspective and trying to live a normal life, he was able to full it off.

The ending confused me a lot and there are also scenarios where I had to analyze or think too much to actually understand what was going on but over all this movie is a good watch once I came to terms with the fact that there were a lot of meanings on the different scenes that were shown.

This film made me watch it twice so just I could re-analyze and understand everything that actually happened. Sound track was okay, but what really got me listening was the ending song entitled "Gerbera" on the last scene. That song gave me the meaning of synesthezia all together. It was a significant title once I was able to understand the whole meaning of the film.

Giving this 8/10 for everything I have mentioned and recommending it to those who don't mind draggy stuff and would love to have their brains twisted into analyzing the film.

    I love the cast here, and none disappointed me in any way, but I didn't get what the movie is all about. The ending was worst, since I had no clue what each's motivation was. Actually the only one I understood Matsuda Ryuhei character's, he made sense.

      I do like to look into double meaning. It's been a while since I watched (judging from my previous comment, a whole year lol. I need to rewatch. It's definitely the type of movie I'd like to discuss. For now time doesn't help but I'll let you know once I rewatch ;)

      I'll keep in mind trying to look at it from the characters' point of view
