Four schoolgirls put the axiom "the show must go on" to the test in this rock & roll teen comedy drama from Japan. Nozumi (Shiori Sekine) and Kyoto (Aki Maeda) are two friends who attend the same high school and have decided to put together a rock band to play the school's talent show. Things are going well until two days before the show, when the group's lead guitarist quits for fear of breaking her fingernails and the singer walks due to lack of interest. Determined to make a showing one way

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
An extremely well-written, emotionally complex coming-of-age tale that has a John Hughesian respect for teenage angst.
If The Beatles were teen girls starring in a John Hughes picture made with a distinctly Japanese attention to the comedy of everyday life, the movie showcasing it all would go something like this.
It's the kind of high-school movie about kids and music that Hollywood would never be able to capture with such intimacy, nuance and restraint.
An understated and disarmingly human tale of an all-girl band in the runup to the annual rock festival at the members' school.
Doona Bae shines as the adorably awkward teenager who's never met a stage she's afraid of.
The movie provides a fine, shiny reminiscence of school days, when learning three guitar chords in the right order was the most important thing in the world.
... a lively, engaging, character-driven piece with flourishes of offbeat humor...
