Press is a story of young people overwhelmed by social discord and their surroundings. The film concisely depicts multiple factors underlying this situation. These are things that could affect any of us. People tend to clam up and stop communicating when depressed or upset. It is also not uncommon for people to note the expression on an individual’s face and decide to leave them alone, even if the individual concerned does not actually consider their problem to be serious. The events in this film are no exaggeration. Rather, they are emblematic of a modern disease, in which a family and those surrounding it slip into a negative momentum. How to address the problem of communication breakdown is a question with great value and meaning for contemporary society. [Japan]
