Need to watch this again. I loved this film so much that after I watched it the first time I didn't want to watch it again thinking it would lose its magic. That was 1 and a half years ago. -_- But the narrative if the mother was just so intense, the music was great.. going to watch again soon.
felt emotional towards the situations the characters were placed in, but found it hard to emotionally connect with the characters themselves. as a satoshi kon fan it was hard to bypass the blatant use of his directorial style and some parts were even quite anime-ish. still a decent movie though
It brilliantly embodies you into each character's desires, addictions, hopes and downgrades. Near the end, when their fates are compiled, that sequence is dramatically intense and provoking. In a side note, I must admit that Sara's struggle was, for me, the most interesting to watch unfold.
