And then, the life goes on
28 June 2004 | by (Chiba, Japan) – See all my reviews

A college student moves to Kyoto to go on to graduate school and invites his friends to a casual party at his new home. This movie is the sketches of their one day incidents. The characters are -

Maki (TANAKA Rena): She's blue in the car on her way to the party, because she had been dying to buy a skirt for many days but it had already been sold when she made money and dashed to the shop. Nakazawa is her boyfriend and Keito is a good friend of her but Maki is a little jealous to Keito because Nakazawa talks more frankly with Keito than herself.

Nakazawa (TSUMABUKI Satoshi): He's Masamichi's classmate. He has a desire to become a film director, but still has not found the way to. He's a moderate person in any meaning.

Keito (ITO^ Ayumi): She's a friend of Nakazawa since their childhood. She has a bitter memory about "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". Her former boyfriend and she swore to cooperate to unify China and they had full and happy days in common. But at that time they could not expect that the video game would result in making them to be broken up.

Masamichi (KASHIWABARA Shu^ji): He's going to go on to graduate school and the host of the party.

Nishiyama (MIURA Masaki): He loves symmetry a lot. So it must be the most regretful thing in his life that he does not notice Maki is terribly drunken and allows her to cut his hair.

Sakamoto (ISHINO Atsushi): He does not talk much and always watches television.

Kawachi (MATSUO Toshinobu): He's handsome and kindhearted. Keito tries to attract his attention, but what is always on his mind is Chiyo. he's so kind to everybody that he has joined the party, leaving her in the middle of their date.

Chiyo (IKEWAKI Chizuru): She always gets irritated when she meets Kawachi. She thinks good nature is not a virtue if it's too much.

While the main characters are having the party, TV news is showing a man who fell out of a window and has been trapped in narrow space between two buildings. Fire fighters are trying to rescue him but they can't make him move a centimeter. Television follows up the incident for a while but when they notice that there are no signs to develop, they changes the scene to another incident.

The incident is a whale which has gone aground on a beach. The residents have gotten together and give water to the whale and try to drag it back to the sea with rope, but it doesn't move a bit, either.

And so, the night falls. How the party develops? Can the man escape from the buildings? Will the whale go back to the sea? Anyway, this is our daily life - each day is precious and no exchangeable for everybody. (7 out of 10)

The director, YUKISADA Isao also directs the latest top one box-office movie, "Crying Out for Love at the Center of the World."
