Kanseitou is a Japanese movie directed by Takahiro Miki. It was inspired by a song of the same name by the rock band Galileo Galilei. In the film, Kento Yamazaki plays a 15-year-old boy named Kakeru in frigid Wakkanai, Hokkaido who’s trying to figure out where he belongs. One day, he meets a transfer student named Mizuho (Ai Hashimoto).

    I really enjoyed this movie. It was a slower paced tale about two teenagers who were a bit of loners... and though it seemed a simple enough plot on the surface, I feel like their were layers of meaning that I'll need to watch the movie again to fully pick up. Above all else, it reminded me of my teenage years. I was always quiet and alone and the boy main character reminded me sadly of myself. I loved the friendship the two main characters formed, though I wished for a happier ending. I'll just make up a future for these two where they met again one day. I love Yamazaki Kento's acting. He is one of the few Japanese actors I feel doesn't overact. Great movie in my opinion. Watch if you're looking for a realistic representation of the turmoils that come with your youthful years. <3

    Kento Yamazaki is the co-starring in this movie. You can find him in the database but it seems doesn't allow you to add him to the cast..(bug?)
