Dustin Chang of Twitch Film felt that the film "resembles strongly of the neo-neo realism of the Dardenne brothers' films but without their sense of hope". Meanwhile, Maggie Lee of The Hollywood Reporter noted Kazuyoshi Kumakiri's "low key but tender depictions of working class people and subtle assimilation of socio-economical realities, redolent of the works of Jia Zhangke and Wang Bing's West of the Tracks".
