Gaku Hamada is really a gem of an actor for his poignant and compelling portrayal of Satoru Watarai,  a man during the '80s who refuse to leave or even work outside of the apartment complex where he lives.  There are very  hilarious scenes and some of them include that scene where a friend pours out his inner emotions while Satoru was all the while transfixed by the martial arts champion shown on TV; and that scene where he relentlessly practices martial arts with disastrous results.  The character of Satoru is lovable and relatable and the twists along the entirety of the film, including the reason to Satoru's phobia of leaving the apartment complex, are surprisingly realistic enough.  I've seen Hamada in films like Sake Bomb and it's so nice to see someone act naturally and in a child-like manner. A  simple, conflicted yet truly lovable character who, in one way or another, has made a difference to all the occupants in their complex.  Worth checking out!

Heartwarming, quirky and hilarious! A simple yet genuinely told movie by renowned director Yashihiro Nakamura that follows the life of Satoru Watarai, a young man who vows never to leave his apartment compound.  Very well-developed script, detailed and the scenes are well-placed and I didn't feel bored as the pacing was steady and consistent.  Gaku Hamada as Satoru was so on-point, a natural when it comes to painting a portrait of a young man who's conflicted and fighting with his own inner struggles, so content of his life in the apartment complex that he also acts as security guard/ night patrol and a sort of caretaker who checks on the attendance by  end of the day.  The ideas are fresh and wholesome, so specifically carried out that viewers will readily appreciate the movie and instantly develop a liking for Satoru.  Impressive performances with the production design up to the clothes worn very reminiscent of the '80s era.  Great viewing companion on a weekend night with friends and family, over popcorn and iced tea!
