About the Movie
Around 200 years ago, a meteorite fell in a village in the Tohoku region. There was no immediate damage after the impact, but after some time, the villagers living in the vicinity experienced genetic mutations and a few gained “special powers”. These powers were feared as “cursed powers”, and some were murdered, some took their own lives because of the weight of having these powers and others left the village without anyone’s knowing. However, the extent of the outbreak of these powers was not limited to this. In some cases, the descendants of people, who did not suffer from the outbreak at the time of the impact, suddenly exhibited these powers generations later. An ordinary office worker, Hiroyuki Sano, suddenly exhibits these powers one day.
I liked this movie. The acting and writing was well done overall. I was surprised at the end and intrigued throughout. it moves a little slow for me but I grew up on fast paced Hollywood blockbusters.
