Why Critic Wants Every Young Person to Watch this Movie?
The storyline about this movie seems to have been inspired from a real-life context, but it is a work of fiction. Despite this, Sato and Kaori’s life seems to have resonated with our young generation at so many levels. Be it Sato’s self-disappointment for being aimless, burning out at work, and getting in unhappy relationships, or Kaori’s dire desperation to become unaffected, free and quirky has beautifully displayed what youth of today’s time goes through.
The harsh reality about the existential crisis faced by young individuals, complex dimensions of adulthood, and relationships is what the movie focuses on and delivers the message to love oneself and others. This movie will leave a young person both relating to it as well introspecting oneself to know what really needs to be changed in order to be who you are and not pretend according to the norms set by others.
