    ★★★★½

    an extremely gentle, genuine, and touching film. the lack of defined plot allows us to carefully notice the smaller details that depict this family's struggle, and the objective point of view lets us absorb family dynamics through small and elaborate gestures. the style and the depiction of small but meaningful interactions culminate into a moving message about the importance of having your family as a support system. i was so moved by this film!

    K-ON! The Movie

    ★★★★★

    K-on is a love letter to friendship. It is a nudge of encouragement to find happiness through life's simple moments. It is serotonin captured on screen.

    Most importantly, it is singlehandedly the most influential series I have ever seen, as it has made me reflect on how much I appreciate my own friends and family.
