The friendship of five guys that once was rebounded into full bloom
14 November 2007 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I discovered Arashi just about 7 months ago because of Jun Matsumoto. but really, there is more to them than him or their over-all undeniable charm that captures fan girls around the globe.

Pika**nchi Double doubled my devotion to the band. It wasn't a typical Japanese film for it had background music - which, I may say, is a very good one.

It is a sequel to Pika*nchi: Life is Hard Dakedo (But) Happy; but what really is amazing was the wordplay both the titles have been put to. "Dakara", a word that replaced "Dakedo" from the first one means "Thus." Thus, this sequel replaces the philosophy of what the first film presented - which is, being content on the hard life because it is happy.

Really, the movie is just about friendship - great friendship. But it bordered to limitless possibilities as it starred five guys who really are in a deep relationship with one another - which is evident in the film.

Also, the movie made me feel that good films do connect cultures from different parts of the globe.
