Most likable and enjoyable Japanese movie that rather caught me by surprise. The title is certainly misleading if catchy and my Hong Kong DVD packaging is nothing short of a disgrace. The salacious cover featuring three girls cavorting in their underwear is just an advertiser's wet dream and nothing to do with the film. Also the box film description is most inaccurate. Never mind, the film surpasses all this and tells a tender and affecting tale, ostensibly about a job centre worker trying to find love but more about the young girl he enlists to help him and her own search for identity. It is more common in Japanese movies for the boys to be seen as lost and interesting for this to be more centred on the girl. All the usual location shots of back streets and convenience stores but a very believable and involving tale, very well told in a seemingly effortless style.
