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 good light-hearted but sad film
23 September 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Rainbow Song tells a love story but not like Hollywood, this film i think, is deeper than most Hollywood love films and it can be enjoyed by men as well. At least I really liked it, perhaps because is a Japanese film and i love their culture, but also for the story itself and the emotions it shares.

The acting is good and most of the characters are lovable though only the protagonist and a few side characters were presented thoroughly.

Besides it has a great pace and scenes reminiscent of Kurosawa like filming the sun through the trees which make this film, altogether with the plot, a serious one.

So this is not a film you'll watch just for entertainment but for the beauty of it as it is a piece of art just like every movie should be.
