What a sarcasm
11 July 2018 | by faiijSee all my reviews

This movie is about a primary school African-Japanese boy who moves to countryside because of his parent's work. He is suspected to have a disease by everyone since he is black, so he tries to prove that he is normal. The movie makes us want to keep up with the boy's decision and his school life. This film narrates Japanese society in primary school that foreigners get discriminated because of their different appearance. Moreover, this movie is really relatable to a foreigner living in Japan like me. However, the film is not as stressful as its plot. It has a little bit of humors of how innocent the kids are. One thing I do not like about this short film is that, since there are some funny scenes in this film, some scenes seem to be unnecessary. From my point of view, this movie can be shorter, but it is acceptable and able to attract the audience to watch it until the end. so far I recommend you guys watching this especially those who are interested in Japanese society and want to get to know more about it.
