Film-making STyle
13 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like art house films. And I take time to sit and watch them. I picked up this DVD hoping to get some in-site into the gay youth culture of Japan. I did find out that there seem to be some parallels with American youth. For example, each of the two main character's find's himself with a delightful "girlfriend." One is the stereotypical "fruit fly" in that she adores her gay friend (Shin) but doesn't have a man of her own. Sorta living the vicarious romance and roguishness of his life. And the other boy (Tatsuro) has a girl who is not quite sure if she is romantically interested in him and he does not reveal his true nature to her. She senses something just isn't right and stays away... that's a good thing. OH.. the movie.. worth a watch.. in a film festival student feature kind of thing. And I did not care for those lingering shots of "nothing but the actor" that the film maker included. I kept wanting to say to the characters "Do Something" but then realized that it was indeed creating some artistic tension.. intended or not.
