A pleasant narrative due to the chemistry between Kenichi Matsuyama and Kiichi Nakai and the satisfying delivery of a visual and narrative climax.
A highly satisfying experience that delivers suspense as well as good dose of touching emotionality.
A highly touching narrative about re-finding social life.
“A very emotional journey about the difficulties of dealing with loss and lack.”
And if we add Matsuyama Kenichi’s splendid performance to the mix, the already engaging narrative is turned into to be a very moving character study of Satoshi Murayama, but, above all, into a beautiful love-letter to the art of Shogi.
