Movie Info

Tetsuya Nakashima spins this family drama about how childhood traumas effect adult personalities. The film centers on a schoolboy named Takashi (Keiichi Hidaka), who seems incapable of blending in with the group. His teacher Mr. Kimura makes such behavior seem like a moral failing that will insure a profligate future. This particularly comes to a head with the seemingly trivial rule that there must not be any flips from the playground jungle gym. Takashi's parents suffered from their own childhood issues which marred them in adult life. Now both seem to be empty shells of their once vital selves. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
