Amazing and Beautiful movie.
11 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot is a standard love triangle plot, firstly, but that isn't so much the focus in this movie. In much the same way as many of the Japan's non-glossy low key output, the characters are put into a situation and then are examined on how the arrived there and where they left. There are really only three main characters and maybe three other characters, so over the course of the near two hours the viewer has much opportunity to learn and understand their feelings and personalities.

The acting was good for a Japanese film, it doesn't use anyone extremely famous, but all were working actors, including a couple of recognizable background characters who appear on everywhere on television.

Music an sound were, but there wasn't much of it. The same goes for the direction, where pretty much every scene is uses a hand held cam, and the more emotional ones utilize close-ups.

Overall, it was a very enjoyable movie, and a worthwhile if not emotional watch and is very much recommended.
