2 May 2018 | by giteckmSee all my reviews

Wonderful movie... How both the worlds meet... The past meets the future.... The past shapes the future and the future shapes the past... Both Yamada and Nishida well best...Especially liked Nishida... He is always great in whatever roles he plays....

At times,I was confused with the timelines. But,as the movie came to an end,I understood everything....
