very poetic
A young man, came from countryside to Tokyo. He's cleaning the windows of skyscrapers for a living. He's desperate, because, there's a distance between him and office workers in the windows. Kagari, a 10 year old girl. She felt same thing as this young man also. The distance between she and her parents, it makes her very insecure mentally. They have something in common. Many people are surrounding them all the time, they can touch them, they can talk to them if they want to. Maybe, they can fill the distance between them. But it never will be. They live in solitude. But one time, they happen to meet each other. That's when young man cleaning windows of Kagari's apartment. They stare each other through the window for a moment. That was a strange moment, but also an interesting expression by the director. Because, they seems that they don't feel any distance between them. Young man said "It's strange to talk with somebody in the window. This is my first time". This film is very poetic, got great expression through the entire film. It's very interesting that the director is now making porno films. To me, maybe, he's always curious about the girls who living in city desperately.
