Cast & Credits
Story wise, I felt like it needed more time, a little more interaction here and there but all in all it gave me what it can with the limited time it was given
The actors were just amazing. Keiko was definitely leading the show while Ryo was not too far behind with a almost always consistently good performance. The rest of the cast felt like they were custom fitted into their roles that I think there is no way the cast could be better.
The songs were fitting but somehow forgettable.
Definitely something I would watch again. It's the kind of movie where you'll find ways to watch it again.
Overall, entertaining, funny, touching and somehow shocking.
Besides Keiko and Ryo Nishikido, Dakishimetai featured an all-star ensemble cast, including Eriko Sato and Aya Hirayama, albeit in minor roles.
