Audience Reviews for Shigatsu monogatari (April Story)
For now I shall rate this 4 stars. It's a difficult film to rate because it is so short. The film is just going when it ends but the ending feels so natural it would seem foolish to carry on. April Story is a fantastic study of loneliness and love as a young girl moves far from home for the first time as she attends university. The film has a real truthful essence to it and many memorable parts which are never fully explored but again just feel so natural in their progression it is hard to fault. The ending is an expertly crafted scene of absolute minimalism. It includes the simple trading of umbrellas to develop true love and desire which some films fail to grab in 2-3 hour long films. Give this a shot as it is fantastic, and short enough you wont be bothered should you not agree.
