these r my opinions
nat and alex wolff fight over a girl, alex calls nat a “white motherfucker”, alex exposes himself on the street, alex says “et tu floor?” to the floor, alex puts on this helium voice v sporadically but also a lot, and their dog dies, and the whole thing is directed by their mum.
this is not a good movie but also, it is a good movie. no further questions
“but we’ll never lose heart, we hate to cry so let’s laugh instead”
EVERYONE SAY THANK YOU ISAO TAKAHATA
the final story taeko tells to toshio and the interspersal of her primary school class following after her on her train - past and present all in one - gets me every time
this film means so much to me
