OK WAIT!!!.......don't push the stop button just yet cause the movie will only get interesting on its half part. It was one of the slowest films I have ever seen even on a Japanese movie standard which is notorious for making slow movies. I don't know if I like the slow pace at the beginning because it is somewhat intended for building up for that awesome last part, I give the first half 5/10 but the later half part is 10/10.

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.

WARNING!!!
it has both rape and nudity so stay away if you're a minor or a person who can't watch movies like this.

CONCLUSION
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.

Breaking a Vicious cycle of Laziness

When you do nothing, nothing happens in life. you become Lazy and do nothing, its a vicious cycle.
i remembered how this little movie left me inspired last time so i just rewatched it. it shows how sports can change a persons life. no it actually changes the person and life naturally changes around him or her. it was depicted beautifully here.
our FL is sluggish at the beginning and so is the movie. i never saw a FL portray such a character before. at mid point she picks up boxing and her energy levels increase and she becomes more lively and so does the movie. many ridiculous and unfortunate things happen to people in this movie and it was depicted as comedy on surface because they have nothing going on in life and have lost grip on life and themselves. at first female lead is like that too but when she finds something to do, she starts to focus and becomes a better person. By the end her Circumstance didnt change much but she has..... and the people around her starts to look at her differently and her broken relationships starts to improve....
Music complimented the mood of the FL through out the movie.
Beware there is one Sexual assault.
