I am and will always be in love with Shunji Iwai's intense melancholic sentimentality. However, it gets out of hand in the back half here and makes the movie go into extremely awkward/bad/dumb/tsundere territory ("We stared at each other without saying a word for 2 hours") and really does not stick any sort of landing.

No change regardless of how many times the change has been urged to happen, and especially no change because of the documentary you just made. What Is The Point?
