12 suicidal teens is not a light movie, but it has a nice ending. At least, a nice enough ending.
What I liked was the individual stories and how different each character was. The mystery thing was intriguing as well. However, the movie felt like there was no theme behind it and no point watching it. Plus, the main story got confusing.
The performances, however, were really good from all actors and actresses. Though one should expect that much from a cast packed with some of the best young stars of Japan.
So, overall, six out of ten.
