    I was supposed to see this one during the pride month but barely had time to do so. If you want some heartwarming, sincere, and not fetishized coming-of-age queer film, this one's good.

    One Day, You Will Reach the Sea

    ★★★★

    Grief is a complicated, mixed-up emotion of disbelief, sadness, anger, guilt, regrets, and hopelessness, and I'm impressed by how Nakagawa Ryutaro excellently conveys it all each time through his works. Though it feels somewhat unfocused as it jumps to different timelines very frequently, it is still a remarkable attempt to represent the overwhelming feeling of losing someone dear to you.

    This film excellently addressed almost everything a queer film has to offer. It's heavy but healing at the same time. I'm in love with this film.

    MOTHER

    ★★★★

    Mother answers back to Shoplifter's "Is giving birth automatically makes you a mother?" as it shows that despite how toxic the parental bond is, there are children who can't seem to cut out the affection they have towards their parents. Also, rather than Shoplifters, this one felt much closer to Koreeda's Nobody Knows which was also based on a true story.
