Storyline

8-year old Yotaro gains a 3-year old step-sister, Kaoru, when his mother marries a jazz musician who plays in a club in Naha, Okinawa where they live. Before long Kaoru's father deserts them, and not long afterward Yota's mother becomes terminally ill. Her dying wish is for him to watch out for Kaoru at his grandmother's place on a small island off the coast of Okinawa. He fulfills her wish and becomes very protective of his younger sister who calls him "nee-nee." Thirteen years later Kaoru returns to Naha and comes to live with him as she starts high school. Yota works hard making deliveries of vegetables from an open-air market by day, and in a restaurant (he is a licensed chef) by night to save money to fulfill his dream of having his own restaurant. He also assumes the role of pushing for Kaoru's entrance to a university. This allows less time for his beautiful girlfriend Keiko, the daughter of a doctor and a medical student at Ryukyu University. It seems that Yota's dreams start ... Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Another Okinawa themed movie
13 August 2012 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

Another Okinawa based movie that hides the fact that it's a boring movie behind the beautiful landscape.

Usually producer Yasuo Yagi's story is very entertaining. But this one shows none of his usual brilliance. It was made during the 2001 - 2005 time period when movies all over the world had dark, or self absorbing theme to them, and perhaps even the genius of producer Yagi couldn't buck this trend.

If you take away the beauty of Okinawa, you're basically left with a story about a brother who loves his sister. There's no other plot going for this story. If you're a woman, maybe being loved so much by someone may resonate with you, but the story is just (boring) endless doting of the sister by her brother. And the ending is so shameful. It's what an untalented writer would do if they run out of ways to end the story. There's even a word for it in Japanese called "Shini ochi" that is an easy way to end the story as a tear jerker.

So, a fail of a movie in my opinion in that it has no creativity going for it. Producer Yagi must have been just a figure head in this movie. Watch his other productions that are wildly entertaining.
