utopias no more
19 October 2019 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

Misplaced faith in political utopias has led to ruin. People and society do not change just evolve one way or another. That is the first thing going on. Genuine ancient codes cannot change nowadays morality and convictions. Then what really counts: friendship; camaraderie; good spirit; humanity; and a bit of evilness disguised as Women. When all seem chaotic, a light of hope brights in the end. A Manga story made movie. Camera work is very minimal and no intrusive. Ok movie to entertains for a moment. Started good then slowly lost momentum.
