This is one of those warm and lovely movies that you just want to snuggle up and live inside of. And that kid in the still, he's like a Japanese version of me. I can't even describe how much I love this.
I would never have known about this film if it weren't for MUBI. Thank heavens because it's brimming with such heart and joy that I feel drunk with happiness. There are so many wannabes out there that try too hard to be surreal for the sake of being quirky and "unique"; every oddity in this film is there for a reason and connects via human threads. We are all endowed with the capacity for magic in our minds.
