"Liverleaf" (2018) directed by Eisuke Naitô based this story on a teen dystopian view on "bullying" and angst. The film is a cinematic interpretation of the manga comic, "Misumisô" by Rensuke Oshikiri. The main target of the bullying is focused on "Haruka Nozaki" (helmed by Anna Yamada) and her family in a nondescript small town.

Naitô stays true to the type of overtop violence found in Japanese graphic novels. Most of violence was filmed in a stylish manner, even to the clothing and injuries endured onto the teen characters.

"Liverleaf" or "Misumisô" refers to a beautiful purple flower that blooms in the winter landscapes, which why many outdoor scenes were in amidst the social snowy landscape. Nozaki's revenge on her bullies starts to toil when a snowstorm appears.

Teen actors were good at delivering psychotic behavior, like the character, "Rumi" played by Rena Ôtsuka. Aside from the celluloid teen assaults, it is a teen love story, or stories. As the film proceeds to a dwindling number of teen survivors, there are plot discovery of a triangle appears.

I had viewed it at an international film festival where most of the viewers were starting to laugh when the violent scenes came up. I feel that their laughing was to deal with the on-screen gore; I would think that Naitô would please to see these reactions.
