A very good long where we have a surprising story of love about two lost souls that meet. A  story full of intimacy and sensitivity that gives the film a poetry  that can reach the viewer in many of the scenes, especially when it  comes to emotional. Sometimes he wants to show a lot of  realism and almost like a documentary he also shows us dreamy images  that do not always connect to what he tells us. Technically it is one of the best films I've ever seen. Very good for those who love a poetic romance!

A beautiful film about two individuals find their connection through the depths of words & feelings beyond sight.

"isn't that the aim of cinema... to connect you with other people's lives? it helps me to live other people's experiences by proxy."

There is something about this film that is poetic (at least for me) since my nihongo is not advance but reading the translated words into English might have different depth of meanings to its original context but I still did appreciate watching the film that didn't take away my experience for this film.

A film that didn't romanticize the impairment instead this is a film showing the depth of the conflict that the characters deal with.
I love reading, I love words and when a good dialogue/screenplay meets a good direction to its film somehow that gives me a good experience.

Ayame Misaki and Masatoshi Nagase did a great job portraying their roles. There's a connection, there's chemistry. There's something melancholic about this film yet there's something hopeful too.
