An Education Directed by Lone Scherfig (2009) jusco’s Rating: ★★★★★ First, I’d like to apologise to my readers (if I have any in the first place) for my long hiatus. Simply put, I got rather lazy.

告白 (Confessions) Directed by 中島哲也 (Tetsuya Nakashima) (2010) jusco’s Rating: ★★★★ Despite having already read the book (read my review of the novel here) and knowing fully well what was coming, I was still shocked.
