Don't compare yourself with others. There's no other same life.

Sghigeru Endo



A director Shinichi Ise films Endo, who has been bedridden for a long time, again after 20 years. Endo has lived, exposing all of his life, including not only the meals but also excretion, to the young people who care for him. He sometimes whined. Now he is hard to speak, but he tries to talk to them desperately with his upper lip picked. The title is a poem he made for young people who cannot measure the meaning of their existence. From a documentary film, “Poems In Entoko.”
