Hello. I saw it once before, but I borrowed it at TSUTAYA because I thought that I might understand something if I look back on it now. When I saw it before, I felt that it was a shooting that was not Kiyoshi Kurosawa. However, when I watched it now, it didn't bother me much.The reason is that when I saw it before, Kiyoshi Kurosawa had a strong image of "CURE" (1997) and "charisma" (1999), and I think I was attracted to such things. By watching a lot of movies for the past year or so, I think that I was able to neutralize such a biased way of thinking and feel a wide range of good works. Or rather, I want to think so.
I won't write an impression for each episode, but as a rough impression, the extraordinary production that sometimes appears in ordinary dramas is eye-catching. But overall, it's a really common drama-like way of making. It's interesting that the regulars of Kurosawa movies so far have also appeared. The combination of a serious female teacher in Eiko Koike's story and a stereotypical sportsman male teacher reminded me of Ang Lee's "Eat Drink Man Woman" (1994).
