Meet Rio, a 32-year-old screenwriter without a hit in five years, but somehow still manages to maintain her high self-esteem by ‘cashing in’ on past accomplishments. Rio reluctantly hosts a talk show where she’s expected to offer romance advice to one lucky audience member. Show over, she must now choose the winner from the pile of filled-out questionnaires. Skimming the responses, Rio notices an intriguing pattern developing; four different audience members make mention of the very same man! What follows is an in-depth look at the women who have been manipulated by an attractive, self-conscious, yet overly callous man. (Source: JFDB) Edit Translation

This review may contain spoilers

Don't watch this if you haven't watched the drama, you'll not understand anything.

You're here only after watching the drama.

This will be a spoiler review :
' How do people see you? '

' You only see what you want '
' You only seek what you desire '

These three lines are the essence of this whole series.
After watching the series, which was made on a whole lot different perspective,
this movie was made just to clear that, what was shown in the series and what was actually perceived is way too different.

The drama was focused on from Yazaki's perspective after hearing the stories and this movie is based on Ito's actions xD

After watching this movie, the outlook and perspective of the drama have totally changed.
Lol, it's so fucking twisted,
We only see what we wanna see in a person, only determine through what we want to see in them.
What a great fucking example!

Speechless! I mean everybody had a different image of him.
And to a certain extent, we as the viewer now got to know what was really going on and How deceptive thing can be!

I enjoyed it quite a lot.

That bathtub played a significant role! Implying closing ourselves and limiting to what we want to see just due to the fear of finding something rotten or unacceptable, how worse it is.
If you notice it was Yazaki who instigated all of them, either way, to make things more dramatic for her own plot!
Although Ito's character is shown as a bastard, he's what you call a chiller. People such as him sway at every opportunity just to not get hurt and enter the ring as he mentioned.
He wasn't as much of a bastard as shown in the drama, but his nonchalant character and Yazaki's manipulation played a big role in determining the outcome

Awesome direction, a bit different from the drama which of course was intentional as this was the explanation of what happened, Nonetheless
Brilliantly executed, awesomely shot and acted phenomenally!

PS : Miki's scene at the hotel with Ito was one of the craziest and funniest scene I've ever seen and my fav from this series. xD

I watched the drama back when it first appeared on netflix. It is an original story perspective(in my watching experience). To appreciated this drama/movie combination more i think that having personally experienced all of these situation at one point helps. Knowing people like Ito-Kun helps.

This still feels unfinished, like their is still more growth for both main characters. If they finish it here , though i am satisfied. The movie is the same story as the drama but from a different point of view and feels like a missing scenes reel with 20 minutes of new content but it did not feel redundant, instead it made me want to go back a re-watch the drama to cobble it all together in my head.


The opening song ???????? - ?Pain, Pain Go Away feat. MUTSUKI from Softly? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gbha39ksG4) is one of the best things to take away from this

i gave this a 7.5 because I know because of my life I got all of, but others may not.
