Gripping and somber
27 January 2019 | by Nicolesbunny88See all my reviews

This is quite a good film about the harsh realities of giving your life to one single thing, and the sobering reality that this one thing may not be enjoyable or ideal. Takuya's struggle, joy, disappointment and desire to succeed is heartfelt. Definitely worth an hour and a half of your life!
