    Last time I saw this almost a year ago, I felt so hollow yet so fulfilled at the same time, I wasn't prepared for what was about to come, a beautiful introduction to Hirokazu Koreeda's subtle and awe inspiring cinematic language that has reinforced itself as my absolute favorite with every film of his that I watch. I am now in simple terms, a "Koreeda hoe".

    Intimacy is a huge part of Koreeda's films, he makes sure that we spend…

    I've seen this film three times, It's the first and only film I've even read the screenplay of, I saw Company the Musical because of this film, so it's safe to say that I love it, and it's my absolute favorite film of all time, and I really want to express something rn.

    Let's start with the opening sequence, it's filled with small details about both of these people, and the whole sequence is arguably the most sweet and lovely…

It's sort…

    So wonderfully dreamy and just absolutely delughtful, I'm in awe of the colors and soundtrack. Everything just goes together so well to create a sense of community and togetherness within these characters, so many of whom haven't met each other but are so perfectly connected through the gentle light in their eyes as they talk and sing about each other, I'm in awe

    More than over a year spent at home has significantly ruined my attention span to the point where I've even found it hard to watch the usual 2hr films recently. I'm not sure why I chose to watch a 3hr20min film about a woman going about her daily routine but I'm glad that I did. I found it hard to appreciate the film during it's runtime, I was constantly waiting for something to happen, watching her going about doing the…
