Storyline

Tomoya, a production assistant for a television company in Japan, hears the news with the rest of the crew that Aoi has been killed in an air crash in Death Valley, California. He reflects upon his friendship with this feisty young woman who left the country to broaden her horizons as an aspiring director. He took the job she left, and ironically they first met when he attempted to bribe her away from her job at a record store so that he could be near her co-worker, a girl he wished to date. Although considered a nuisance at first, Aoi finds him a bit of a kindred spirit and casts him in a leading role in her college student film, "The End of the World" which she has written and will direct. Aoi takes the leading role opposite Tomoya when her leading actress Kyoko refuses to do a kissing scene. The two continue to console each other about their lack of romantic relationships and job opportunities in an outwardly platonic manner, but underneath deeper currents are running. Aoi's ...

A realistic romance not a "fairy taled" one.
9 January 2009 | by (Morocco) – See all my reviews

When watching a Comedy/Romance movie, most of the times, you expect it to be witty, sometimes funny about a love story between two hot protagonists. Or when it is Drama/Romance typed, you expect some complications, involving family problems, or the likes.. . But this one is neither of these, it's more like an everyday realistic "romance" that most people must already know.

I prefer not saying much more about the film, because i perfectly enjoyed it without having any idea about it, so you better not read any reviews containing spoilers or the likes, if you want to enjoy it to the fullest.

The acting was perfect, a little different Aoi Yu and a completely different Juri Ueno. I don't know much about the director's style or other films, but one day i may become his/her fan.

a nearly 2 hours film, with a beautiful slow pace that let you be more and more closer to the characters, and feeling like you're one of them. Highly recommended , preferably in a rainy or a snowy day.
