Vladimir’s review published on Letterboxd:
A dream-like journey through post-war Japan, the journey starts at the North of Japan with a boy catching a butterfly, it seems like this butterfly is representing the dreams of the Japanese people and what happened to those dreams. The struggling to believe what happened and the questioning whether those dreams are fake or not. Nagasaki, the South of Japan, the beginning of a trip through everybody's life and the post-war society.
An absolute masterpiece! I dare to call it the Japanese-Japanese version of Hiroshima Mon Amour.
