Storyline

Shy architect Takemoto, pensive ceramics student Ayumi, hardworking senior Mayama, and super-senior artistic madman Morita are four students at an art college in Japan, each taught by Professor Hanamoto. When artistic prodigy Hagumi, the daughter of Hanamoto's cousin, arrives at the school, Takemoto falls for her immediately. However, Professor Hanamoto suspects that Hagumi may open her heart to Morita faster, leaving the dejected Takemoto to decide whether he should yield to Morita, or continue to fight for his affections. Meanwhile, Ayumi pursues Mayama, who looks right through her due to being obsessively in love with his boss...a much older, widowed woman. Written by Morticon

A Little Piece of The Story that Makes You Curious
2 October 2013 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

The film Hachimitsu to Clover is based on a manga/anime with the same title (meaning Honey and Clover). I wanted to watch the anime so badly but ran into the movie first, so I gave it a try.

The story focuses on the five main characters that play together in an art school. First, the leader, a guy with glasses and a clumsy attitude. Then a young student, a naive guy with a strong attitude, wanting so badly to become a complete adult man. Third is a girl, while being a quite elegant woman, but is strongly attached to the leader, trying to get his attention as the guy unlikely realizes anything. Fourth, a second girl, small, childish like behavior, but very talented. And the last is a guy with a slacking attitude, tends to give a sloppy image, but gives a mysterious hidden talent.

So briefly, the leader doesn't realize the girls attention, the naive guy so deeply fixated with the little girl, and the little girl holds a mysterious attention to the slacking guy, whilst the slacking guy giving a mutual feeling.

The story goes by as they try to accomplish each of their trials of life. Being a Japan movie, the pace of the story is low, but while you go slowly you are entertained by the nature, the music, the beautiful conversation, et cetera.

So if you enjoy Japanese films, you would enjoy this one. For me, it was enough to make me more wanting to watch the anime. Moreover make me gloom about my life and my own trials of life. And made a strong memory on its catchy soundtrack. 8/10
