Famous actresses Takeuchi Yuko, Maki Yoko, Mizukawa Asami briskly come through the entrance of a studio. Although they have glittering acting careers, when they enter a dressing room, they find themselves in a parallel universe. In this world, Yoko did not pass the audition for a production that would be the turning point for her as an actress, and goes on to work part-time at a bar while she plays minor roles as an extra. She has been keeping a diary because she cannot forget the embarrassment of being left behind by the people around her. Asami lost out on an audition for a production too. She feels insecure and jealous that Nanao, a friend of the same age who also aspires to be an actress, has scored a significant role. On the other hand, Takeuchi Yuko is scouted in Harajuku, but turns down the offer that would have been the turning point for her as an actress. She is now busy with her magazine editorial job at a publishing company, but leads a fulfilling life with her boyfriend. One day, Yuko is instructed by her boss to turn the manga which an acquaintance has drawn into a book. In an unexpected turn of events, the lives of these three women strangely start to have common ground and eventually get intertwined … Add Synopsis In Portuguese

An unexpectedly charming film about the huge potential of seemingly small life choices, and really funny to boot! I found myself laughing out loud so much throughout this SP. It takes on a decidedly comedic tone but not without whimsical little touches on friendship and fate which complete its charm. The alternate universe "what if?" story has been rehashed since the beginning of time but I've never seen it set in the supposed "real life" realm and fictionalising an actor's real history/personality. I loved this premise from the get-go and it didn't disappoint with its delivery.

The main three all have their own respective character flaws and complexes which make them all interesting and comical and engaging individual characters in their own ways. Performance-wise, these veteran actresses are fantastic and clearly very talented and household names for a reason, Takeuchi Yuko in particular *shining* during the bar scene (you'll know which when you get to it!).

The music is interesting in that it feels like just the one band in a small stage show creating all the musical sequences throughout. It works in its simplicity though - the classy jazz numbers, to the piano solos to that brilliant drum solo during the climax (that got me on the edge of my *seat*) - they feel very organic and doesn't bring the film out too far into the realm of melodrama.

The only unfortunate part is the very last closing scene. It's not particularly bad, it was just a little lacking in execution because of a rather weird creative decision on the writer's/director's part. Rewatch value is high though because I'm about to watch it again for the laughs and I would recommend it to others solely on the unique premise alone.

Fun and unpredictable. It was a perfect choice to watch it after a movie full of testosterone. It is a light and short movie, each actress narrates her story, what would have been their successful movies and doramas IF she passed X audition (Maki Yoko and Mizukawa Asumi) or called when some agent scouted her in Harajuku (Takeuchi Yuko). All three of them meet and form some sort of bond, two of them because of being an actress, two of them because of work, two of them because of a guy.

I wouldn't call it a comedy where you would laugh out loud, but it was entertaining, very slice-of-life-ish. I wonder if Maki Yoko can truly draw? Her work was very charming. And I also think she was the best in the trio, which surprised me since I thought she was too stoic in other works I've seen before. And this is unrelated to the movie, but I liked her voice as well.

The ending was so funny! I mean the outcome of Mizukawa XD
