Hollywood mainstreamers, move on
24 December 2017 | by the_doofySee all my reviews

The kind of movie you have to go outside of the United States to find, the kind of movie that catches U flat footed when U realize what is going on, and yet everything is right there in front of you.

Original script, very nice classic type music, acting is kind of accurate for the ages portrayed. The kind of movie you do not forget once you have seen it.

Clean movie in terms of drugs, language etc, and yet far more adult in its premise then almost all R rated movies out there

Thank You Japan
