If I critique this film independent of Kore-eda's body of work, I could say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Humanity is still the centre piece. It reminded me of Kurosawa's Rashomon, where the truth is in the eye of the beholder.
An ocean deep of beauty..

It may not be a film for everyone, but for me it was heavenly.Watching it in the cinema is a pleasure for cinephiles since it was shot on 70mm. It really does look amazing.
A great study of human behaviour, obsessions, fetishes and then the letting go..
A puzzle of a film you'll never solve but you don't need to. Because it's genius!
