Meaning but delusion
14 November 2014 | by (Hanoi, Vietnam) – See all my reviews

In some first episodes, the film showed the reality of unemployment people and the priceless as well as important of a coin of 500 yen. I really interesting with this detail. However, the character of the main Kindaichi (Kimura) is built so perfectly. He didn't feel unjust when he is forced to resign and always think and care about others when they faced difficult instead of care about himself. OK, maybe I'm too utilitarian, but, now how we can find a person like him in the society?

I want to mention about the finale. Firstly, 1507 employees of Miracle Electronic ALL resigned and came to Kindaichi's hovel. It's very ridiculous. When Kindaichi worked at Miracle, how can he talk or work with all of them? Why do they ALL know about him? Why do they ALL decide to WORK for his's company? It forces me think about Kindaichi like a national leader as Mao Ze Dong in China and Park Jong Un in South Korea.

Secondly, Kindaichi and people said: The brand of a product is NOT important, the most important thing is the people who did it!!! I think the writer did not sell before because she/he does not know anything about SALES & MARKETING. The brand is very important, at least we can know which one is luxury, which one is popular, and it's also important to decide the price. Let me take a example, a Channel's tailor (not designer) accidentally decide to resign and work for LV, and so that the brand is not important???

Finally, in the end of film, Kindaichi, Moai and Saya do not work for Miracle, they study to create a thermos which can retain heat for a week ??? For whom? For 3,4 days is good, but for a week... Well, we have to CHANGE the water in our thermos INSTEAD OF KEEP IT IN THERMOS for a week. And three of them should not do like that, they should work for research department of Miracle instead of choose the poor life. PRICELESS is doesn't mean you should live poorly, is mean you should respect everything, everyone in every moment in your life regardless of whether you are rich or poor. I think the film is good, but the finale is a disaster!
