Saw this movie the other night, reminds me of the Japan I lived in and saw every day. Awesome people doing their best with what they have. But "Naoki-san" talking about pre-bubble Japan reminds me a lot of California in the 90s.
"Lack of good paying jobs and affordable housing puts strain on relationships, causes social isolation, leads to depression and, in some cases, suicide.
Although Japan is one of the "wealthiest" countries in the world, economic conditions are very difficult for most of its people, partly because of the extreme cost of land/renting."
Heres the website to watch online. Japan in the 60s must have been nuts.
