Takao is a high school student who notices his classmate Aya reading French poet Charles Pierre Baudelaire's The Flowers of Evil at a book store. The poetry is something that he enjoyed as well. Takao had a crush on Nanako and stole her gym clothes at school. Sawa had noticed what Takao had done.Written by
A sentimental film about human identity and escapism that feels like a mix of the emptiness from "Goth" with the hentai stuff from "Love Exposure". Performances are amazing, didn't expect to become so emotionally attached to these characters.
I just don't seem to get tired of these romance films about outcast teens as I get older. This is easily Noboru Iguchi's best film and very different from all his previous stuff.
On a side note, the story was so good it made me watch the anime afterwards. It's a much darker version of the story, but sadly only covers the first half of the movie. They are both very different and I love both versions.
