    a beautifully poignant story of healing and finding beauty amidst the pain & grievances of life. though this is certainly a long film, the amount of delicacy and thoughtfulness Hamaguchi ensures throughout each second ended up making the runtime excusable for me. dialogue heavy films such as this one only really work if there’s always a constant discovery within each character and their philosophies and perspectives, and this film did a great job at doing that. the writing itself is what…
