>>32692>You should watch it its one of my favorite movies but it's so depressing at times. I wouldn't watch it if I was depressed since it would make me feel even more depressed.
Hmm… I thought I could watch Lily Chou Chou but then there are some really icky trigger warnings that involve nudity, sexual assault, rape and bullying involving teenagers. Definitely not something I want to watch now, lol because I'm not in a good mood, but then I see that the main character was just 14 when the movie was released. Maybe child nudity or panty shots are considered okay or "funny" in Japan but it's just gross and I don't know if this is culture shock or something but this really makes me icky and creeped out.
Maybe times were different in the 90s too and it was "okay" for a creepy man in his late 30s to place cameras to capture accidental creepshots. Maybe it's still a normal thing because there's a movie called Love Exposure released recently that glorifies creepshots of highschool girls, at least it's acted by adults and not minors. There's also this weird Czech movie that I don't want to mention that features child nudity and actual graphic sexual assault scene with the child acting in it that is super gross too, but then it was a product of it's time and child protection laws were quite lax I suppose. The culture shock is jarring and I don't know what to make of movies like these that try to be artistic but borders on child exploitation. Japan is weird and I guess I'm just rambling, lol.
