My mom pointed something out when we watched this together— in the end Sullivan got away with beating a man with a rock because Sullivan is a well-known director. This is a movie about lifting up the poor and desolate but he got away with assault for being rich and famous.
I bought this movie because it's about a manga artist and her friends and a cat, that's adapted from a successful manga, and I couldn't imagine how that formula could possibly go wrong. Well, as it turns out...nothing happens.
More a piece of history than entertainment, this is mostly lectures and arguments on Communism interspliced with abstract conversations. I’d rather have watched a straight-forward documentary or taken a class.
