Storyline

Etsuko - a typical Japanese high school student, who's unlucky in love, an academic failure, and plain bored with life. That's until one day, the view of a boat gliding gracefully in the sea inspires her to take up the oar. Since she's rejected by her school's all-male rowing team, she decides to form her own all-women team. Nothing will ever be the same again. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

An energetic 15 year old girl founds a female rowing club
28 October 1999 | by (Frankfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

Produced by the SHALL WE DANCE-team (Shoji Masui and it's director Masayuki Suo), the movie won 25 awards on film festivals in 1998. The English title of GANBATTE IKIMASSHOI is GIVE IT ALL. This summons the philosophy of it's protagonist, a school girl who manages to build up a successful rowing team in spite of certain defeats and her own illness. In meditative shots, repeating the rowing efforts of the girls again and again, we begin to hope for the happy end of the story. Rena Tanakas charm as Etsuko is a bit rough, still she earned 11 awards as best newcomerin herself. The topic is not of common interest as the dancing theme in SHALL WE DANCE was. Still this is a quiet and convincing movie for the young and the old and a role model for school children's activities.
