Audience Member Interesting insight into the much sidelined rural Japan and the social problems it faces, through a subdued but intriguing story. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member So nice to hear Japanese and see familiar faces :) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member The doctor in a small town secretly doesn't actually have medical qualifications. He leaves when he thinks he might get found out. The end. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
