The film begins and ends with Pink Floyd’s “The Post War Dream” that should be the first clue that this is going to be a slow and thoughtful movie. Ninomiya Kazunari is excellent as Shuuichi a bourbon drinking high school student who desperately wants to protect his sister and mother from the abusive Sone who has forced himself back into their lives. It’s a good thing that Ninomiya is such a good actor because he appears in virtually every scene and if his performance was less than perfect this movie would have fallen apart under it’s own weight. The imagery and symbolism of the film is striking with Shuuichi waking in a large tank, later dating at an aquarium, Haruka later in the tank. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys movies that will leave you thinking about for days to come like Metro ni Notte or fans of Ninomiya Kazunari who want to see him in a great role.
Direct download the movie here, I couldn’t find any seeded bit torrent releases when I searched for it.
YouTube video of The Post War Dream is posted after the screen shots.
