I'll admit that I only watched this film because of Naomi Nishida (from "The Happiness of the Katakuris"-- a far far better film that this), but ouch was this a real bore.
By the end of the film -- and I'm rather disappointed that I bothered to watch the whole thing - - I had no compassion at all for the characters. The "arts students" were stereotypically the worst students you could imagine (ie. lazy, talentless non-working dossers), the plot is virtually non-existent, and the central "artist" is a misogynistic wastrel. The film outlasted its welcome by at least an hour.
The only good thing I'd say is that this film is available on certain sites, so at least you won't have to waste hard cash to watch it. Time, on the other hand, waits for no man.
