“This highly effective and thoughtfully composed cocktail of tension and mystery (…) becomes nothing other than one of the most powerful plea’s for more serious attention to mental health in Japanese society.”

The Path Leading To Love (2018) review

“Takayama Kohei has potential as director as he treats the spectator on some truly exquisite shot-compositions and frames the devastating effects of alcoholism and the importance of love in the coming into being of the subject in a precise and creative way.”

The Name (2018) Review

“A beautiful narrative that shows that a genuine bonding, a bonding beyond the preoccupation with the superficial ego-images, is still possible – and is now more needed than ever.”
