I went into this movie (like all movies) with no expectations and even at the end when the credits were rolling I really wanted to like this movie but there were just some things in this film that didn't sit right with me.
Without giving anything away, the director has a very heavy-handed approach in trying to illicit an emotional response from the viewer. Loud rock music and forced tears coupled with over-dramatic situations leaves some of the scenes feeling out of place and out of sync with the film.
The lead Character Ai feels entirely two-dimensional throughout the film. Even through two confessions, she doesn't feel fully developed. A plot driven movie this is not which leaves everything in the hands of its performers and the performers are not able to fully keep it all together.
The film was an enjoyable little experience but you won't be walking away feeling something significant.
