    Ummm, are we supposed to 'like' Adele?

But God damn it, other than a few select scene and some good editing choices (I really like the 'tug of war' editing style in the conversation between Watanabe & Midori), I found nothing redeeming from this movie. The acting was horrendous, the pacing was outright abhorrent, and I couldn't feel the chemistry between the characters. I mean, sure one of them has a mental illness, that doesn't mean the whole cast get a 'get out of rehearsal free card'
