Unusual and stimulating portrayal of family relationships
18 July 2009 | by rvalerio-1See all my reviews

This is quite an unusual and stimulating portrayal of family relationships, using the time travel technique to add an even more complex perspective on the story.

My feeling about this film is that it is probably more suited to those who enjoy unusual film direction and particularly that of modern Japanese cinema. This kind of film can best be enjoyed if one leaves behind all preconceived notions of how stories should be presented through the medium of film, and also how other cultures may choose to do this. If the film is approached with such an open mind, it does provide a very powerful cinematic experience.
