Artful, interesting movie with two unusual characters
9 September 2018 | by baharukaSee all my reviews

Chocorietta is the artful movie that has probably been watched by preteen and teen Japanese culture fans and when it didn't meet their expectations of a usual romance or fun movie, they gave it a 5/10. It's actually a solid movie about the loss of loved ones, dealing with a problematic past, and most probably with a personality disorder. You have two unusual characters struggling to find their place in the world and come to terms with themselves and their pasts. It does a pretty good job about reflecting the reaction to loss and the difficulty of moving on, which made me say to myself "I've been there". It has a big Fellini influence therefore, you'd be hearing lots of Fellini references.

I've landed on the movie because I've been watching Masaki Suda films in a row and he's the male lead in this one. He's quite a talented actor with some awards under his belt. The female lead also does a great job. It's the longest movie I've watched in a while and maybe it could have been a much more impressive movie if it was more compact and to the point but, the length gave me a sense of reality and I liked it.
