Storyline

Near Kawahara, a young man on a bus connives to meet a single mother by knocking over her son's box of crickets. He's Hiroshi, she's Haruka, the boy is Yuichiro. Hiroshi pursues Haruka, and she invites him into her flat. When Hiroshi is not engaged in exuberant sex with her, he's playing with Yuichiro and learning the intricacies of the neighborhood sport, cricket wrestling. The local cricket-raising champion is Anzai, who desires Haruka for himself. Haruka's ex-husband Taro and his girlfriend Kunico are also around - and everyone's paths will cross over desire, love, loneliness, and the quest for a victorious cricket.

What about the cricket match?
18 April 2009 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

There is nothing like a good romantic comedy, especially when it is paired with cricket wrestling.

Haruka (Rinako Hirasawa) is a single mother who meets a new guy. Hiroshi (Mutsuo Yoshioka) is unemployed, but gets along well with her son. The two lovers get along great. So great that they are having frantic sex whenever they are together. You don't see that in Hollywood RomComs.

Of course, the sex alternates with the local pastime of cricket wrestling. Hiroshi is trying to beat the champ Anzai (Kazuhiro Sano), whom he has never met. His prime cricket gets in some hot water - actually hot oil, and he now needs to find another.

Of course, neither of the lovers are particularly faithful. We don't just see flirting either, as they engage in sex with outsiders, which, of course, leads to the predictable breakup.

There is some over-the-top silliness, and even some girl-on-girl action that was totally unexpected and, given the context, weird.

But, all ends as it would in a typical RomCom. You knew that, didn't you.
