Storyline

Keisuke, an aspiring samurai-movie actor lands a major role in a new film, but must contend with a director who has nothing but scorn for him, but who continually fawns over the film's obnoxious ham of a star. Meanwhile, Keisuke has been dumped by his girlfriend, Eri, after she becomes heartbroken when he considers working full-time as a bar manager rather than pursuing his dream. Through her job as a translator, she meets an Italian professor who claims to talk to trees, and who immediately starts trying to woo her. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

This movie really makes me want to visit Japan even more so!

The cinematography in this film is so relaxing - emphasizing the beautiful tranquility of nature; the main theme which serves as a metaphor throughout the story. Add a great soundtrack of electronic beats and some really mellow sounds (Eri's theme) and that's another level to enjoy it on. What about laughs? Kengo is fun to watch as his scheming ways just makes you crack up in almost any scene he's in. There are some real funny scenes on location of a samurai movie, but if you watch, it looks like the whole cast and crew had a blast making this. Thenm there's our sweet Eri who's situation is fragile as a disturbed ecosystem. Some great scenes include indoor photo shoots, flirting, non-sappy romance and a really cool place to get some fresh air.

Nakano's Stereo Future has its own life and I tracked this Japanese edition DVD just to see it. It's one of my favorites. Remember, don't buy Altechi!!
