A decent film
18 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every once in a while I across this type of Japanese film. It's a bit like David Copperfield, but with a bunch of flawed characters. The main actor is a boy who was taken out from the cult, and being placed in a foster home. However, he decided to escape in order to find his younger sister in Tokyo. Along the way, a runaway girl that hangs out with older men for money decided to help him. So what do you get when a cult-minded boy travels with a realistic tough girl? An interesting film about people with bad decisions, and a society filled with selfish desires.

Also, it's worth mentioning the main leads act pretty well. I have seen many Japanese kids bad acting... but they convince me in this movie.
