I was furious for an entire day after watching this. I'm over it. Hamaguchi wants to make a children's PSA about how uncool city folk are and how pure (except for the killing part) "local" people are, so be it. More power to him

I don't begrudge Sion Sono for making films I hate because his good ones are monsters. Same for Hamaguchi I've decided. He's hit five homers, a triple, and a sacrifice fly out of the seven other films I seen from him

Ryusuke Hamaguchi Ranked


What the Actual Fuck. This is a bad children's movie that feels twice as long as <i>Happy Hour</i> and then it goes dark for a few minutes. Wow, so cool

Re: the Low Hanging Fruit Town Hall where the locals give it to the ignorant city folk. As an ignorant city folk, Fuck You and your third grade level script

This isn't bad Hamaguchi. It's a bad film. Just because the guy has made 7 or 8 fantastic films doesn't mean he's doing something worthwhile here, something we, in his honor, are not capable of grasping

I like the car scene with the two ignorant city folk. That's some Hamaguchi

This film is boring and stupid. I don't care if it's ambiguously on the right side of some issue

Summary: Takumi and his daughter Hana live in Mizubiki Village, close to Tokyo. One day, the village inhabitants become aware of a plan to build a camping site near Takumi's house offering city residents a comfortable "escape" to nature.
