Yoshida manages to make it interesting just by using carefully crafted characters
14 September 2013 | by mynameisloongSee all my reviews

It's a good example of characterization in film. As long as the characters are crafted nicely, put them in any situation, the film will be as interesting as any award winning film (I said interesting, not as good as!). This film is directed by Daihachi Yoshida with simple or almost without a straight forward story line. The motive is to show high school students' self- searching process. Yoshida just put in a situation, a famous student disappears. Then the interesting characters will just lead the way as it effects every society in the school. Suzuka Ohgo, as Aya Sawashima, is worth notice. She do not have much lines but her expressions is just as full as a full cream milk...
