“A visually pleasing narrative that explores, with a refined irony, the very problematic dimensions of nationalism.”

“A beautiful and emotionally rich meditation on the complex notion of motherhood, underlining, in a touching way, that the first essential step in becoming mother is the subjective assumption of the signifier mother.”
Along The Sea (2021) review
An amazing and highly relevant narrative that succeeds in exposing the dark exploitative and de-subjectifying tendencies of Japanese society.
