Good Enough
7 May 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

From Namiya Zakkaten no Kiseki I liked the first and the last part.

The begining was nice, as the story started growing and the movie presented the odd parallel world that was connecting the past with the present through the letters. Midway though, the movie got a bit boring for me. It picked up a lot after a while, however, with strong dramatic scenes and just great performances. The small letter cases were nice as well, although I found myself confused by the main one at times.

So, for the performances and the world built up, six and a half out of ten.
