Linda Linda Linda, from Nobuhiro Yamashita, focuses on friendship to put together a schoolgirl band."A music group of girls need to learn to play a song before the school festival." There really isn't a whole lot more to it than that. Spanning nearly two hours, if there is something missing from this picture, it is a little more meat to the plot; however, it is the slow dramatic style that gives this film its success. The tone makes it feel like time spent with the characters, rather than watching them.Linda Linda Linda is far from a comedy. The humor is subtle, and minimal at that, but effectively used. Like the storytelling, the smiles happen with the characters more than at them.Bae Du-na gets a lot of credit for this one, delivering both Korean and Japanese lines of dialogue. Kashii Yu, Aki Maeda, and Shiori Sekine round out the other likable band members.Linda Linda Linda may be mellow, but in the end it is a satisfying sit through.
