    I wanted to watch another film with Kinuyo Tanaka and stumbled upon this film. Her acting did not disappoint and she gave such a perfect performance. 

    It’s fantastic. It was a really elegant, beautiful, funny, and heartbreaking film. I am going to watch all of Shimizu’s films that I can now!

    Edit: This film was magical. Idk how else to even describe it.

    2nd Edit: I am still thinking about this lovely film.

    This was quite a long watch. It felt overlong not so much so the runtime. I liked the blending of showing real life then going into the story. That kind of story always gets me. 

    The ending was my favorite part of the film.

    Aesthetically I found the film really interesting. The story was alright. It did drag a bit. Way better than his short films but he made those as a student so I forgive them.

    The opening act in this film was perfect and thrilling. Sadly, it was the last interesting thing that happened in the film.

    The neo-liberal nature of this film makes this one of the most obnoxious films of the year. It was a chore to sit through. If my partner hadn’t made me watch it I wouldn’t have. 0% interested in Camila Cabello and anything James Corden is in. 

    Idina Menzel singing showed how bad every other song is in the movie. Wish Minnie Driver sang more because she is so talented. Billy Porter was fine… I guess. Best outfit. 

    There is so much wrong…
