Kazuyoshi Kumakiri is an odd choice for doing a manga adaptation, it's no surprise then that Freesia: Icy Tears turned out to be a pretty odd film. Its fictional future is never explained in full, the characters are rather hard to read, and the somewhat muted approach to the material is certainly not standard. And that's exactly what makes this film stand out. It's a pretty intriguing and mystifying feature that kept me interested in the story and characters, while also establishing a unique atmosphere. Nothing quite like it, which makes it a worthy recommendation in my book.
