depressingly real
5 November 2015 | by carinosamenteSee all my reviews

slow paced & not much happens (lots of silent moments), which adds to the realism.

the acting is so great that it feels like you're watching a documentary. while watching this movie and observing the main character, undoubtedly someone you've once known will make their way back into your mind. we all know/knew someone like the main character, even if that person is ourselves.

even the clothes the character wears greatly resembles the NEETs here in America.

this film may not help you understand the socially withdrawn but it'll show you a true to life depiction of one.
