97 minutes of my life I'll never get back.
30 January 2021 | by Bonny_SueSee all my reviews

Second only to The Limits of Control (or as I like to call it, The Limits of My Patience), this is the most excruciatingly boring and constipated film I've ever seen. Had it not been for the fact I had to watch this for a Japanese Film Club, I would have given up after the first 15 minutes. I regret not giving up, and am considering not going to Japanese Film Club next week to save wasting another 60 minutes of my life energy on it.
