    A movie about male sexual frustration and obsessive love that grows stale after the halfway mark. A boy loves a girl so much he grovels before her in masochistic humiliation of ever increasing severity. Kinda funny, even touching, but one can't help but think... someone toughen this kid up for chrissake.

  1. Good acting and understated filmmaking turn off-putting material into a mildly engrossing drama, if not a particularly compelling one.
  2. 63
    Newcomer Akihiko Shiota shows talent as a director, but he allows Sasayaki to go on too long.
  3. A disturbing, and disturbingly funny, twist on adolescent love, and Shiota captures the emotional avalanche with understanding.
