good experimental drama
13 June 2017 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

...this one has many of the aspects that you can find in experimental films but seems that it needs the second part out loud not only to finish the story but to see if this is too pretentious or a good movie. The camera work and contrast/blurs, in my opinion, are really well done. You have here Shota Sometani and Kiyohiko Shibukawa both actors that always take these controversial characters. The story is about a teenager that after his father death he moved with the older brother and girlfriend but keeping always the distances and /or being a bit reserved and in his own. The couple received him pretty well and the relation with the older brother is good enough. He takes modern dance classes with a classmate. So modern that seems that "Energy" is involved and evolved in this "un-touch" dance. By the way the person performing the dance teacher is so good that I started to think that he s not acting at all...of course he s a well known modern dance choreographer. We do not know if this classes act as a catharsis to disengage all the supposed interior demons or something not related to that. At most points in the movie the director shows us that this guy possibly can have some kind of "power" or even a dark side. Power to dominate his closer relations may be. We do not know exactly because at less than an hour the movie is finished with the words: "to be continued"
