Derick’s review published on Letterboxd:
Hamaguchi's already intuitive understanding of humans doing human things and making human mistakes is enriched here through being married to Murakami's 'magic realism'; which to my mind provides opportunities for stylistic flourishes perhaps not evident in his other works that I've seen. And the silences! It's amazing how much you can say without saying anything at all. Nothing but superlatives for the quality of the screenplay and, well, basically everything about this.
