Unusual in a good way
8 November 2020 | by gdalesmithSee all my reviews

The actors did an outstanding job portraying believable characters in a sad story based on actual events circa 2014. The proof, at least for me, is that I watched this entire movie without understanding a single word or being aided by subtitles! The director surely had a lot to do with this as well, and thus also deserves special mention.

Some interesting glimpses of life in Japan ( I think it's Japan). The small but clean facilities provided for homeless people is one example.
