Love and insanity
2 April 2020 | by FrixnorSee all my reviews

Okey, so I love this series. I love the concept and how it has it "out spring" in science.

The reason I give this episode 8 out of 10 tough is that I am not sure how well I think Sonoya Mizuno and Jin Ha performs. I get that they do not get any freebies (scenes, sound/music, bare dialog etc) and asked to do much. But the "flatness" that works in some scenes do not give any engagement when it comes to their relationship or love for each other. Also other scenes the demands some emotion does not seem to work for me.

Also I think this episode is a bit heavy on the symbolism. It so easy when it works to over do it. I think it is a bit over done this time, especially in the dialog at the table... (and the homeless guys).

I liked that the episodes theme was clear on what it wanted to convey - the human aspect.

And here is where the philosophic question arise for me (stop reading here if you think it is spoiling to speculate in what philosophic question I think this episode raises). Have insanity a cause (meaning the acts you do after you have gone insane)? Does acts of love (which in some cases may be called insanity) a cause? And can the effect of these acts be predicted?
