Shinichi Tsutsumi's performance of a catatonic social misfit whose soul is so tortured (for reasons never made entirely clear) he can barely speak is so good it spoils a good chunk of the movie. The beautiful Yui Natsukawa wants to marry this guy so I tried to imagine them having sex and couldn't, pulling the plug on my suspension of disbelief and deflating any drama from that angle. Then there's the unappealing Rina Uchiyama stalking him. I could imagine them having sex but it might be illegal, if not simply counterproductive to the gene pool, so scratch that angle. All we're left with is shot after shot of people standing in the rain being serenaded by the worst version of "The Way We Were" you'll ever hear.
It's no wonder that after seven years no one has commented on this title. There is a decent story hidden in this movie but it's never made very clear and the plot points we're treated to just don't add up. Sorry, Shinichi. Great job but I'm voting thumbs down.
