Small gem, great tribute to Nouvellevague
This underrated film was released just before Christmas in Tokyo. As a long time fun of the director, I enjoyed very much this beautiful film. It appears to be an ordinary boy-meets-girl story with somewhat quirky atmosphere, but inside I found the film is filled with homage to the Nouvellevague cinema.
Among them, I remember the film “Cleo de 5 a 7” by Agnes Varda (1962), which includes discussions of mortality, despair and the meaning of life. I also felt the airs of Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut. If you love the French films in 60s, I believe you will enjoy and appreciate it more.
The line by Hiroshi (the Ghost) summarizes the theme of this film.
“We have so little time to say any of the things we mean. We have so little time for any of it.”

Ever since I saw the film’s poster, I made a promise to myself to see this film, and finally promise kept. This poster caught my interest because of the colors used and how it looks different with other poster. Usually lead characters in poster have those “practice poses” but this has a natural feel in it. It seems that I’m paying too much attention with the film advertisements nowadays, I just can’t help it, because it’s one of the factor that will always arouse people’s interest. And aside from that I’m a follower of Mia Wasikowska, giving me enough reason to watch this film plus I was anticipating for the performance of Ryo Kase, who looks younger than ever in his role.( I never thought that he has a Hollywood debut! He looked really good in Hachimitsu to Clover, but he looks way better here!)
Story-wise(spoiler alert!), even though the plot is nothing new but another usual death of the ill female lead and the positive change it will bring with the rebel male lead, I still commend the writer for being able to create a different angle out of the overused plot. I also like how they used an indirect scene with a solid meaning to conclude the story, it’s as if leaving us the option to think of what happens next after the last scene.
I’m also deeply impressed with the woody tone of the film that they’ve used, giving a classic silent film vibe which suits the story and the characters. The cinematography is beyond average though music scoring is quite average, but still the total package is alright, it’s decent.
