The lines drawn between us — cinematography in After the Rain

The fourth episode of After the Rain ends with two movie pamphlets. They’re both from the same movie. They’re also from two different circumstances to Akira Tachibana. The first time, her attendance was coerced. The second time, it was freely given.

Yet she cannot tell the pamphlets apart.

She laments that they’re “Definitely not the same” but with her personal context removed, they’re identical.
