Gomen
21 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this film on the International channel before a trip to Japan. The acting seems kind of unusual, but it grows on you, as you watch the movie, to a point that you really start to like the characters. Otherwise it is a cute story about a young boy Sei from Osaka, who falls in love for the first time in his life with a girl Nao in Kyoto, who's a little older. If you have visited Osaka and Kyoto, you may recognize many filming locations of this film. To me the most amazing one is the Sagan coffee shop, where Nao works with her father. The real coffee shop is actually located on Pilosophers' path in Eastern Kyoto, an area very popular with tourists. I happened to recognize it walking by with my Japanese friend, and the owners were very excited when I did (great coffee too!) I was a little disappointed that none of my Japanese friends had seen the film, but at the end I was glad that at least I did. The DVD was released only in Japan, but the movie has English subtitles available, so anyone can watch and enjoy it.
