Critic Reviews for Close Knit (Karera ga honki de amu toki wa)

All Critics (5)

A delicate, heart-warming film which touches on serious topics like discrimination and ignorance, without finding the need to raise the stakes with unnecessary scenes of conflict.

Oct 24, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Close-Knit leaves a lasting impression not simply of the injustice faced by transgender people, but also of what joy there could be if society were more tolerant.

The whole film rises or falls on Ikuta's performance as Rinko -- and he is superb.

Feb 22, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

One might find the tremendous emotional swells of Close-Knit so moving at times that one can barely hear the sound of fresh ground being broken in Japanese cinema.

Feb 16, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Gentle, empathetic and deliberately non-confrontational, Close Knit is definitely on the mild-mannered end of the spectrum when it comes to movies dealing with transgender issues.
