What are people saying?

  • Coheed 2.5's rating of the film Yuriko's Aroma

    A very interesting piece of drama from Japan whose premise intrigues but goes on to something rewarding, a fresh take on erotic desire which isn’t perfect but does well. With the exception of a pointless scene of softcore ‘lesbian’ titillation out of place in the plot, it shows the building blocks for a director who could go on to make some very good work in their career.

  • lupiter's rating of the film Yuriko's Aroma

    there's something about the music that i didn't like (too invasive, some scenes didn't even need this annoying corny music playing in the background), however, shota sometani & noriko eguchi do a pretty good job, plus shota is very cute so i guess it's not much of a bad movie after all.
