Probably the biggest difference between the classics of the invasion film and Before We Vanish is the alien classification. As sinister as his intentions may be, his presence has something good in it, he is also a committed romantic, who defends the intuitive human feeling that is evident when interpersonal affection proves last resort in the apocalyptic setting. Ironically, by understanding the word love, the movie reaches its limits. As a group of school children try to explain their meaning, they all have a different definition. The alien scratches his head and takes a little while to understand that one can not only explain love, but only feel for oneself. In fact, the task of supposedly more evolved beings is more difficult than previously thought: they received knowledge and memories mainly from their human hosts, but lack understanding of terms such as family, self or possessions. If a person can give an idea of ??these concepts, they are "taken". The aliens in Before We Vanish feel like vampires that do not suck the lives of their victims, but their core values.

This review may contain spoilers
This movie was screened in the ‘Un Certain Regard’ section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival with Mugen no Junin (Out of Competition).

Just like where it was screen in Cannes, I too am a very UNCERTAIN with my feelings toward this movie. (PUN intended. LOL.)I don’t know if I like it, hate it or if it’s just OK.

There are some parts of it that I find amusing and nice, some that I do not like at all. I wonder if it was because of the characters, the plot or how the story unfolded or maybe how it was told?
