    Press

    A quietly combustible tale.

    Maggie Lee, Variety

    Expertly calibrated.

    Sarah Ward, Screen

    One of Japan's most innovative filmmakers.

    Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

    The film's insights don't merely hit their targets; they smash it with a sledgehammer.

    Sarah Ward, Screen Daily

    Masterful performances.

    Maggie Lee, Variety
