I'm With The Band
7 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly standard but also well put together story set in the early 90's about a fictional indie band named Lands. Asako (the very pretty and, for a young age, fairly accomplished actress Kii Kitano) makes her way backstage after a show and the lead singer wants to know her better. What follows is a drama about music, the music industry, the creative process and, ultimately, relationships. Its not a great film, its much more drama than music. However, in showcasing the different personalities of the band and wisely letting Ms. Kitano be her usual ingratiating self, the film works. Probably best for teens and post teens, but the film showcases the dynamics of not only band members and friends but people who are brought together for a common purpose. For its story, it is a fairly tame film, a good idea. Recommended.
