trying to be someone
4 January 2019 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

...when you finish the College in Japan, the "job hunting" starts for most and this is not a nice race. The movie is focused on several aspects of this situation where pressure is a great candidate regarding the interminable tests and exams to become nothing more of a "sarary man" However, becoming one in a big company determine the rest of you life and a very good economy for you and your family. So you are there under pressure here and there, losing self confidence to try to be someone in a Sea of people; but do you really like that? Most do not question that but many try to not be a part of that. This is a risky path and very difficult if you do not have enough talent and the right connections and/or money. The dichotomy between to be "free" or to follow a given talent that might you have or be part of the mass working for THE MAN with the compensation of economic future?
