    The Garden of Words

    ★★½

    The Garden of Words depicts the romance between an underage boy and a 27-year-old woman, which is a shame because this one is arguably Makoto Shinkai's most visually mesmerising mood piece to date.

    In Makoto Shinkai's dreamy world of a rain-drenched Tokyo where industrial marvel and natural beauty co-exist perfectly, we follow the slow yet inevitable development of romantic bonding between a teacher and a high schooler.

Considering its deeply uncomfortable subject matter, it has all the advantages to be an emotional hard hitter, only for it to end up as one of the most tedious experiences to sit through this Oscar season.

    Pieces of a Woman starts with its infamous one-shot…
