"8.6. Lisää hyvää Ozua. Harvinaisen hyvin näyttää tällä ohjaajalla toimivan, että tekee käytännössä saman elokuvan aina uudelleen pienillä variaatioilla. Chishu Ryun isä päättää uhrata poikansa kanssa vietettävän yhteisen ajan, jotta saisi kustannettua tämän opinnot. Päätöksen edut ja hieman taka-alalle piilotetut mutta ilmeiset haitat ilmenevät heidän yhteisissä kohtauksissaan. Hyvä toimeentulo mahdollistuu, mutta ihmisen on pakko sitoutua tietynlaiseen elämään"

"1.4 Turhankin tapahtumaton ja aikalailla aikaisemman Only Sonin toisintoa, joka oli kuitenkin huomattavasti tunteikkaampi ja tehokkaampi ja niin pois päin. Pidin elokuvasta tästä huolimatta, mutta en varmaan lähtisi katselemaan uudestaan."
