Good movie about friendship, community and family
26 September 2020 | by mister_batemanSee all my reviews

This movie doesn't really have a discernible plot you can follow, it's one of those japanese everyday life stories about everyday people in a small town. It does have a message, but it's not pushed in your face, instead it's conveyed in a low key way. The movie is about small town folks, fatherhood, friendship, family. It's very mellow for the most part, but never boring. I quite enjoyed it.
