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

21 January 2008 | by rwmjSee all my reviews

I'll admit that I only watched this film because of Naomi Nishida (from "The Happiness of the Katakuris"-- a far far better film that this), but ouch was this a real bore.

By the end of the film -- and I'm rather disappointed that I bothered to watch the whole thing - - I had no compassion at all for the characters. The "arts students" were stereotypically the worst students you could imagine (ie. lazy, talentless non-working dossers), the plot is virtually non-existent, and the central "artist" is a misogynistic wastrel. The film outlasted its welcome by at least an hour.

The only good thing I'd say is that this film is available on certain sites, so at least you won't have to waste hard cash to watch it. Time, on the other hand, waits for no man.
