A touching and heartwarming romance drama that captivates the spectator not only because it’s driven by romantic feelings feel genuine, but also because the truth of love is so charmingly delivered by someone not yet fully subjected to the patriarchal societal fantasy.
A great and visually pleasing narrative about the socially embedded nature of the process of coming-into-being-as-subject.
‘Katagiri’s perfectly executed tonal shift turns Saki’s subjective journey into a truly touching experience.’
“A truly pleasant cinematographical narrative that succeeds, notwithstanding its lightheartedness, in formulating a truly relevant message.”
“While it is admirable that Daisuke Ono attempted to craft a narrative around an emotionally unstable subject – an emotionless subject that can turn hysterical in an instant, this project would have fared better if Daisuke Ono would have explored Rara’s subjectivity in a more structured and deeper way.”
