Slow but good
26 July 2020 | by laura_d-01685See all my reviews

This movie definitely takes its time. I don't mind that at all. And if you like slow movies, this is definitely worth a watch.

It starts out as a comedy but just when I started to think that it would be a bit too crude or too simplistic to be funny for the whole movie, the movie turns more serious.

The chemistry between the characters, the main characters but also the side characters is great.

The story is basically about a relationship, between Ketsuo and Sokono, and they both turn out to not being open with each other. About what and why Ketsuo is not will be obvious from the beginning, but what is she not telling him?

I don't really get why so many people did not really care for this movie and gave it such low ratings. I enjoyed it and watched it in one go.

I mean, is it a movie that will rock your world? No. If that is the only reason to like a movie, don't watch this. But if you like slow movies like I do, and if you like movies that are a mix of funny and serious, then seriously give this a go.
