(Watched this as the part of opening ceremony of Japanese Film Festival 2018 in Bandung)
Karuta is an old game based on the knowledge of old poetries, and it background as well as the main source of conflict among the characters. I had to see the previous parts before watching this. To be honest it was a weird choice to open a festival with. This film has enough amount of drama, decent acting, cameraworks are ok, it represents parts of Japanese culture well (maybe this is the main reason), overall It was an OK movie.
