An elementary tale of prejudice in a small Japanese town against the unknown, but imminently fatal AIDS, as carried by a returning native school girl, Akiko. The first fifty minutes or so - on a first of two night screening - seemed simple and vapid; but the second half, after a couple of glasses of wine, drew me in ... and the film made sense as an instructive plea for understanding suffering and overcoming fear. The film is almost shockingly sober.
