Refreshing
30 June 2005 | by (Mie, Japan) – See all my reviews

I assumed this film was Japanese remake of "Men of Honor" but this really wasn't like that and very refreshing youth movie about a man wishing to be a diver in a department of Japan coast guard. The story and visual expression is a bit typical Japanese and might be hard to understand some part of it for American viewers, but the main plot should be understandable. Through the group of young men living straight toward their dreams, you will recall how your youth hood is like and get inspired by their attitudes toward their bonds built in a group work of training. This may be also encouraging for the youth pursuing dreams to come true. Once you see it, you might feel like trusting in somebody again.
