Director: Takahiro Miki
Language: Japanese (subtitled in English)

Takahiro Miki’s two-part romantic drama — based on a popular manga by Yuki Obata — buffs standard genre elements to a high, emotional sheen. A schoolgirl (Yuriko Yoshitaka) falls hard for an older student (Toma Ikuta) who is mourning a dead lover, while his best pal (Sousuke Takaoka) is falling for her. The film’s platitudes are nothing like real teen-speak, but fans won’t notice. Edko Films’ DVD includes English subtitles.
