Cast & Credits
As for the title "100 Yen Love", don't let this title fool you, yes it sounds like a title for a cute romantic comedy film but it is nothing like that and you won't get that feeling here. Go watch it to know why the title is like that and see the transformation of main lead's character which will may inspire you.
The acting, what can I say Sakura Ando is indeed the greatest young japanese actress right today. I'm into contact sports myself and I can say that ando sakura put hard effort to look like a real boxer, her movements don't look fake unlike other sports dramas I've watched. Only a few actress can do or even think of doing roles ando sakura takes. Aside from Hirofumi Arai, I have not idea who the other actors are, but they act well especially her sister in the movie, watched out for that epic food fight.
it has both rape and nudity so stay away if you're a minor or a person who can't watch movies like this.
Go watch it because it was one of Sakura Ando's best performance and it was Japanese representative on the upcoming Oscars foreign movie category.
