    I have never enjoyed a movie like that for years, this just feels so authentic and real, real emotions real faces and real humans every box office movies now is there to hit theaters to make more money there is nothing authentic about it and is all full of unnecessary sex scenes this is a masterpiece that doesn’t look anything fake just conveying human emotions and interactions family issues. it’s a 10 from me.

    This movie has to be one of a very few that I can recommend to everyone to watch several times and guarantee that it will not only entertain you but also make you want to see it many times more. This movie is indeed one of the best that I have seen, and just as good as the movies of Yasujiro Ozu such as The Tokyo Story or Late Spring.
