Being quirky doesn't necessarily mean funny, and so this is a light, harmless comedy/road movie - or a "walk movie" - that comes up with potentially funny situations but doesn't always know how to fully explore them or how to maintain a good focus during the second act.
Story is a little odd at times, but not a bad movie - mainly liked it for the scenes of Tokyo.
Excellent movie with a very nice and lovely story behind all the, seemingly, random encounters that Fumiya and Fukuhara find themselves in. While this random encounters never really have any impact on where the story of these two is going, they are incredibly entertaining and eccentric. It definitely adds to the charm that this movie has. Jo Odagiri and Tomokazu Miura have excellent chemistry with each other and they develop a really lovely relationship with each other. Fukuhara becomes the father figure he could've been to Fumiya had his son survived and Fumiya gains the family (albeit a fake one) he probably SHOULD'VE had. I think the fact that they don't reveal Fukuhara's motives for murdering his wife is actually a benefit to the movie. I just feel it would have screwed with the dynamic and it adds intrigue to the character who comes across as a very likable but eccentric and sort of trying to figure out how he did what he did. Really, just an excellent and incredibly underrated movie with many funny and touching moments.
