Juno McGuff is a good movie that awares teenage girls and their known ones about dangers and consequences of early pregnancy. A problem that exists on our society so we need movies like this to deliver the message. "Enjoy your youth". But on personal opinion, the movie COULD've been A LITTLE more serious. Plot deserved it. ""Jû yon sai no haha" or as known in English "Mother at 14" ,has the perfect dramatic balance that plot needs for the message to work. Here the girl is 14, and she doesn't only want to HAVE the baby, she wants to KEEP the baby. As twisted as this sound, and of course at first with heavy family opposition, she puts a LOT of thought about being a mother. She's forcing herself to "act grown up" and transforms her into a very mature woman. A 14 years old mature woman.. I can't call the character a "girl". The actress may be young but deserves an Oscar for best actress her mannerisms and seriousness to play the part are breath-taking. No matter if you liked Juno or not, I think Mother at 14 is an important piece to watch to make a comparison between the two of them. Both had their own angle to play with the topic, Japanese and American culture are different and their public is different too. I'm British myself, but if you ask me, Japan way works better.. 10 stars.
