This is actually one of the kind story there is no trailer for this but I did found some similar kind thing posted on yt anyway it caught my attention and we decided (me and my friend) to give it a go. Even if the movie is quite old and you don't expect much I was quite surprised with very outstanding and thought-provoking movie.

Story 9.0
it's very interesting and could be better actually the timeskips kinda weren't so pleasant since they were pointed out but it was part of developing story and it had to be there so things wouldn't be rushed. These days it's usual to guess timeskips because no one really writes on screen 'two weeks later' etc. I liked how there were sientific facts in there though because of my lack of English knowledge I didn't really understand some and just let the story flow haha

Acting/Cast/Music 10
There isn't anything to pick on, everyone did wonderful in this movie
soundtracks and music were great it fit the movie and I couldn't really get picky on that, they managed to send the message to the atmosphare there to us so no complains

Rewatch Value 9.0
I could see myself rewatching this year later or maybe two but not sooner let's just remind ourselves that this is an old movie and for its year it did wonderful but compared to movies these days it does lack action a little

Overall 9.5
Overall I really loved it, enjoyed it. I don't usually write reviews as you see I am not that good but it's sad to see that there isn't any in this movie, just want to tell people that this movie is actually worth it's time. Me and my friend talked a lot after this and it really affect our way of thinking, we questioned many things as I said it was thought-provoking which part I love to encounter  when I didn't really expect.
