First off, this art-house film is a mixed bag: it is a Franco-Japanese production directed by Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami, with a 100% Japanese cast. The story progresses very slowly, often with unnecessarily long takes. Some viewers will find some parts of the story to be disjoint. For example, I still do not understand the significance of this young girl, a student doubling up as a night-time prostitute, ignoring her visiting grandmother who waited for her for an entire day at the train station. Overall, though, this is a film very different from traditional dramas that we are used to, in the way it is told, and the subject matter. For this reason alone it is worth making the time investment to see it. In Japanese with subtitles.
