Audience Member A very simple yet effective film, Nagai Sanpo deals with parenthood and its issues with the central characters fighting their own demons. The girl child's role deserves a special mention. Recommended! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Slow but thought provoking drama of an old man seeking to vanquish some demons from his past who forms a friendship with a 5 year old girl called Sachi who lives next door to his apartment and is badly mistreated by her alcoholic mother. It's heartbreaking to see the way she's treated like dirt by her own mother as she's so cute and adorable. Such a great little actress. It's a sad storyline of 2 lonely people brought together by circumstances who take a trip to go and see "the blue sky". The open ending will leave many frustrated. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member makes us think of humanity and social problems such as domestic violence. impressive with beutiful scenes.
