Well written and directed film,almost a masterpiece.
A well dramatized picture with interesting characters. Combining entertaining action sequences while tackling social issues at the same time. Probing into the homogeneity of Japanese society and touching on the delicate issues of Kamikaze pilots and the position of Women in Japanese society. All main characters have depth and plot twists are enjoyable.
