Well done foreign coming of age film.
11 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Looking at the movie poster you may think this is a typical (by American standards) teen sexploitation film. It is not. It is a coming of age tale set in an all girls school in Japan. The writing and dialogue are well done and realistic. The situations between the two main protagonists seemed real in every way. The acting by the girls was first rate. SPOILER ALERT! -- Perhaps the weakest part of the film is a scene at the end during the Arts Festival where several of the girls' openly profess desire for one another. I found this part a bit suspect knowing the Japanese predilection of saving face. However, because of that cultural taboo it made the scene string than some alternative.

SPOILER ALERT! -- If you are looking for lesbian T&A, explicit sexuality and situations, then this is not your film. It is deceiving in that way and I believe it may be the reason for the lower ratings by some viewers. If, on the other hand, you want to see a foreign film that explores taboos in a sensitive and well crafted manner, then give it a try.
