A new dimension of boredom
5 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

In my view, this film cannot be enjoyed. It is a sequence of boring scenes with no meaning whatsoever. It is hard to distinguish the characters as they all wear school uniforms in gloomy environments. Despite all the positive reviews and awards, I don't understand why someone would enjoy watching this. I don't know what to add. Maybe Japanese jurors like to watch schoolgirls in underwear. The end was especially disappointing after dozens of disappointing scenes. Scenes were you don't understand why characters act like this and why. No I am repeating myself and this review becomes as boring as the film.
