JERSTinCASE’s review published on Letterboxd:
Deliberately and painstakingly slow. Full of sorrow and heartache. The main characters are all searching for something and almost appear zombie like at times. Emotionless and zapped of life. It can be frustrating that people don’t just say how they feel or what their thinking, but then you realize that was the point all along. Kafuku and nearly everyone around him has suffered a great personal loss. The challenge they face is how they can overcome their pain and try to discover a life worth living. This film is so poetic and beautiful. The final moments bring tears to your eyes, as our two leads finally turn their grief into acceptance then can begin to start a new.
