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>

best movie you haven't seen
28 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's touching to read the reviews for this very special movie. I actually watched it only because I found a VHS copy selling for $1 at a thrift store and it is certainly one of my all time favorites. And this film provides a strange speculative "answer" to so many films out there about... being in a romantic quagmire. I think RW Fassbinder would have adored this movie and I bet Wong Kar Wai did and many others....

It looks as though there is no DVD of this film available but at the moment used copies of the VHS are available starting at 2 bucks on amazon... and you you and YOU should get one!

I have to add more lines: I got mine!
