...some people really do not appreciate where they live
29 February 2016 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

Tamako returns to her home town after graduation, but instead to do something with that degree, she only do children stuff like play video games, eat sweets, sleep too much or do nothing at all. She lives with her father; he is a hard worker man; with his sporting goods shop; cleaning; preparing the meals, etc; each day. Also; he do not force Tamako over and over to find a job or to do something with her life; only a question that when she will look for a job and nothing more; he do not insist; but still he continue with the hard labor; meanwhile she says: Japan is hopeless" then he response: "Japan is not the problem, is people like you".

The film takes place in the four seasons of a year; but the gal does not change at all her routines except when she found that her father could have a girlfriend. This seems to be the only thing in which she decided to act or at least see whats going on. May be she see that in that way her bubble micro world could be in danger.

Tamako (Atsuko Maeda) had a roll on the J pop idol group: AKB48 but here she is doing a completely opposite roll; and her performance is pretty good.
