The Lunch Date, 23 July 2016
Author: Sayapiiin from Japan

The story is about a woman who misunderstands. The first scene of the film is a woman misses a train. She waits for a next train and has time. She plans to eat a meal in the station. When he orders a salad and he leaves her seat in a moment, she notices that a strange man eats her salad. Because he insists that it is his salad, a woman and man have an argument and scrambles for it. However, she notices that it is her misunderstanding after a man leaves. It is only fact that she mistakes her seat and keep a salad that nobody set hands. She knows the laughable fact and holds her sites with laughter.

The film has dialogue and it is a black and white film. Thought it is a few dialogue, the character has an expressive face. So, it is easy to understand the story in ten minutes. I thought that the way of filming has a result to make me interested.

I feel that the end is witty. Though I thought the strange man is an evil person, I was surprised at the fact. I guess that we can enjoy watching the film for the second time.
