a brave act in a democratic beginner country
7 July 2019 | by nw2035See all my reviews

I have seen this film in Tokyo last night. little budget, preparation and corporation must be... still in a country like Japan, where media and entertainment industries are too weak against influence by big corporations like KEIDANREN, the main suppoters of ABE administration, this attempt has to be claimed as a brave action. you can' t imagine but it is actually true that in Japan now, all actors in this movie could lose their current positions in the main entertainment media because of the participating in this piece.
