Decoupage’s review published on Letterboxd:
I need to watch this again. Upon first viewing, I thought this was a formally accomplished, visually delightful but ultimately disappointing slog of a soap opera film. As I started to write a review, the thought occurred to me that Tokiko's psychotic and unpredictable nature are at the very heart of the story. Maybe it was all one big giant Yasujiro Ozu joke.
