"Night's Tightrope" Based on the novel "Shojo" by Kanae Minato (published January 20, 2009 by Hayakawa Publishing Corporation).
The novel tells the story of Yuki (Tsubasa Honda) a sophomore high school student. She volunteers in a pediatric ward on her summer vacation because she wants to witness the moment a person dies. She got that thought after being envious of a transfer student's story of seeing a friend's body. Yuki has a friend named Atsuko (Mizuki Yamamoto). She has been bullied in the past and has anxiety issues. She volunteers herself in a nursing home on her summer vacation, hoping that she will gain courage if she sees the moment a person dies ...
I liked the book much more, the film was very adapted to give a climax of greater commotion and emotion. Yukiko Mishima may have tried to "cause" rather than "express" a better impression of the novel, so to speak, because it is a somewhat unusual novel but it is a good novel, Kanae Minato knew how to write very well.
Already the film, left to be desired. It does not excite you to want to revise, not as much as you want to reread the book.
As for the cast and performance, the famous and inexpressive Japanese style of being, that is, has no way to judge.
In general, a medium-length movie for those who enjoy novels, it's worth it to get to know this Kanae Minato story.
