You know, there are many songs, movies, stories, dance....reflecting a period in a human life. And sometimes those events in life are reclaimed in your memory. I'm not sure about that, but probably this movie is one of them.
BTW I live in Yokohama but I'm Romanian and that's something impossible to reject and I DON'T WANNA!
Sry for that ""pathetic"" introduction.
The movie is worth watching and analyze.
The real story, I don't know.
The legend I'm sure, I was reading that since I was a boy.
The actors are great!
The directing also great.
If you have nothing much better to do watch this story and enjoy.
