The Crush
21 August 2013 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

This is the story about the boy who is in love with his homeroom teacher. He loves her very much and proposes to her. As a matter of course, she doesn't take it seriously. Moreover, the boy knows that she has a fiancé.

I like this movie very very much because the boy who is the chief character in this film is very cute. In addition, the imaging technique is also good. For example, the picture becomes slow in the scene where the boy admires her. Though it is the ending that I can expect somehow, it is very interesting and makes me happy. I wonder whether he saw through the true nature of the man from the beginning. Surely the boy is in new love sometime. But I wish the boy marries to her when he grows up. I want to see the sequel which is about the near future of the boy.
