Couldn't connect to the main character.
16 January 2021 | by TokyoGyaruSee all my reviews

The main character fails to evoke empathy because she fails to be a complete character. We spend a ridiculous amount of time with her doing nothing (does she even have a job?) but being a frigid, vague, disinterested, boring girlfriend and person in general. She's pretty in a girl-next-door kind of way, but there's nothing spectacular about her face or figure (she could be a German 10 for all I know)--the reason I mention that is because there is NOTHING that is a draw about her as a person unless the guys are superficial, and even then she's a bore. Frankly, she sounded like she enjoyed her vibrator the most.

The premise is interesting, but it's executed blandly, and it looked cheap at times, especially an explosion at one point. The acting is that bland, passionless German style that doesn't move me in any way whatsoever--yelling, crying, confessing hurtful things, it's all passionless. The film itself is also black and white for no discernible reason aside from pretentiousness. I'm seeing a pattern in how reviews not outright praising the film are being received, but I don't care. It's just passable at best.
