This is pretty much the Japanese version of "The Incredibly True Stories of Two Girls in Love," and, like its (close-enough) American counterpart, it's on the dumb and plotless side. Cute and charming, which redeems its viewabilty, but still lacking a strong plot.
I am such a sucker for movies like this. seriously, no idea if it was "good" or not, but I thought it was pretty great. beautiful japanese women coming to grips with their lesbianism in a standard romcom kind of way - good stuff. it was very "indie" feeling - the digital photography, the "we can't afford lighting" scenes, etc. the script was kind of silly, but whatever. the biggest problem I saw was the DVD itself. it was matted widescreen, so the upconverter couldn't work and it had black bars on both sides AND top and bottom, so I had to rely on my tv's "zoom" function (uggh). it was like 1998 instead of 2008 - we have widescreen tvs now, guys.
This is a very sweet Japanese lesbian romance. The â€œbadâ€� things that happen are so minor I kept waiting for something extreme to happen, and was glad that it did not. Nice comfortable pace, beautiful shots, and sweet women in the lead roles. Plus a nice sex scene at the end of the movie. ;)
