Quite a beautiful b-movie
20 January 2019 | by alexfromhornSee all my reviews

All set in a catholic school in Japan a series of crimes happen. That's basically the plot. It's not clear who's behind it and it kind of continues step by step and remains mostly interesting. So the dramaturgy is well set up. The acting is mediocre but the main protagonist delivers a good performance. The music gives this movie an emotional tone, a good one, similar to many animes. The atmosphere is quite dark but it hard for me phrase why exactly, but it is good and fits the scenario. So if you like good dark crime movies with an artistic edge or if you are a fan of Dedective Conan you should totally watch this.
