Shinjuku Swan is a fantastic movie. The cinematography is great, the characters are memorable and compelling, and many themes are explored.
The movie has a lot of characters and manages to interject them into the story very organically. Making the interaction between these characters feel organic, and dramatic, because there is tension between them.
The movie was also able to tell many short storie throughout the movie, and connect them to the overall theme of the movie. Making the themes of the movie more memorable.
The world building of the movie is amazing, the movie manage to capture a world of happiness, acceptance, and rules but at the same time with subtle hints it captures a darker world that is yet to be seen.
Shinjuku Swan is a great movie, that I cannot wait to see again.
