I really like this kind of movie because it captures almost everything beautifully with less dialogues in it. It's literally just another teen drama but it emphasizes a lot of things and explains them bit by bit in the simplest way possible.
Kyoto is famous for its' culture and this movie succeeded showing me that. How the cinematography uses Kyoto cityscapes for the interlude between two different scenes affected me to learn about the characters' feelings and point of views as natives. How they see people who leave, their desire to change, how they overcome the infamous teenagers' identity confusion, first love, the process of longing, their view about the future and at the same time living their present time, too. I believe this movie speaks about lots of things in silence and I really love how they let us learn about all of them through its' 1 hour duration. It's remarkable.
