Harmful Insect follows a girl named Sachiko after her father dies, her mother attempts suicide, and her entire class is gossiping about her possibly having an affair with her sixth grade teacher who recently moved away. Because of all this, Sachiko stops going to school and hangs out with a street-dweller named Takao and his mentally disabled friend. When Takao is beaten to death Sachiko is forced to return to her former life, only to face more unwanted trauma at the hands of adults who never seem to have her best interests in mind.

GAICHU is a raw and highly emotional film, one that doesn’t shy away from controversial subject matter. It’s a smart film that respects its audience, never overly explaining things or manipulating you. Shiota’s direction is humble and discreet. Use of music is in tone with the sober style of the film. There’s no score, and only two songs are played, both perfect for the moment. Acting is great! Just like her character in EUREKA Aoi Miyazaki speaks through body language and facial expressions, and delivers one of the most powerful performances I have ever seen from an actor her age. A perfect film.
