Masuda, who had his dreams of being a journalist dashed, begins working at a backstreet factory around the same time as Suzuki. Suzuki avoids interacting with those around him and doesn't talk about his past, but gradually he begins opening up to Masuda who is the same age as himself. However, under certain circumstances, Masuda begins to suspect Suzuki is the juvenile criminal who had been responsible for a killing spree of children 17 years ago. (Source: JFDB) Edit Translation

Addictive Watch

Layered story of the regrets and lessons learnt when one errs early on in life. Briefly the movie follows two story lines of reconciliation and remorse.

Superb performance and method acting by Nagayama and Ikuta Toma, it truly does feel like you're watching a documentary with this cast and their raw, honest emotions. For a movie that takes the time to depict each character's journey, it's sequenced well as you anticipate the next scene and you're kept at the edge of your seat.

Although it can get a little convoluted, it's not to the point of confusion and encourages deeper focus and rewatch by the viewer. Furthermore, the movie covers heavy themes that can only be told over the course of several scenes, so re-watching is a guarantee for My Friend "A"!
