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>

If Fuji TV is involved with a film then I want to see it.
18 August 2003 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

I knew nothing about this film, "Give It All," when I bought it except that it was a Fuji Television production, and I was quickly learning that Fuji TV makes quality movies. As it turns out now, "Give It All" is one of my favorite films. The photography is beautiful and the sound track is the perfect enhancement to this wonderful story, a story that takes us into the awkward world of a High School girl who wants to start a rowing team for girls. The emotions are genuine, the acting superb, and I suspect that the screenwriter must have lived the events depicted in this film since this is a subject one would never expect to see in a movie. It is funny and sad and inspiring and wonderful. I'm glad I bought it, and my friends and relatives enjoy the copies I got for them, too. (This review is regarding the vcd version of this movie with English subtitles.) The entire family will enjoy this movie, and now, I am going to go watch it once again.
