    Except for a few slow patches, the movie is compulsively watchable: You keep waiting to see just how sick things are going to get.
  2. A disturbing, and disturbingly funny, twist on adolescent love, and Shiota captures the emotional avalanche with understanding.

    Best of all is Tsugumi's wild performance.

    Newcomer Akihiko Shiota shows talent as a director, but he allows Sasayaki to go on too long.
  5. Surprisingly poignant, thanks to its enduring sense of tenderness.
