self made man; a la jpop comedy
16 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie starts and finish in an odd way. That only, is a fresh approach and match perfectly with the story board. Its develop around several stories where the common factor is the main roll. -The first one is kind of a simple case for the Apology king, then the difficulty increase to a level that several nations are involved to try to find a solution for that offense! All the stories have a relation between them and reminds me of the "six degree of separation" theory. In my opinion, the point is that there s no only incomprehension between a couple, parents, friends, at the job, but between cultures and you need to be very cautious to not offend many in this world Or how many we are offended but did not perceived it due to the other part did not took offense?

-Seems too that there are moments in life where you are not prepared to accept such revered apologies

-The actors are right in their rolls. The pace is rapid and the final is pretty "urban" Japanese teenage culture. Very good entertainment.
