Storyline

Summer vacation has emptied a Japanese boys' school of all but three boys: the junior Norio & the seniors Kazuhiko & Naoto. They have no families to return to for the summer, so they spend their days in the empty school. A darkness hangs over the three however: the suicide, three months earlier, of classmate Yu. Norio blames Kazuhiko for Yu's death, because it was well-known that Yu loved Kazuhiko; so Kazuhiko is cruel to Norio, and yet has bad dreams. This uneasy arrangement is exacerbated by the arrival of Kaoru, a student early for the fall - who looks exactly like Yu. Written by Gary Dickerson <slug@mail.utexas.edu>

One of the most hauntingly beautiful Japanese Films
14 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

I like this film because it reminds me of my earlier years. The confusion, innocence, love and emotions come very close to me regardless of age and nationality. These feelings distinct in adolescence are universal which have repeated many times in my life.

I love the idea of having 4 teens abandoned in a beautiful surrounding. The piano music score is enchanting.
