Tsuneo is an ordinary college student taking his boss's dog out for a walk one day when out of nowhere a large baby carriage barrels down a hill and bumps into a nearby guardrail. After a brief confused pause he decides to check the carriage for passengers. Instead of a baby he sees Josee, a girl about his age who suffers from cerebral palsy and has spent her entire life insulated from the outside world by her eccentric overprotective grandmother. Although the two have nothing in common and don't get along at first, Josee's quirky personality intrigues Tsuneo and the two end up spending much more time together. Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
I liked the quirkiness of the plot and how it showed that people with physical challenges love and can be loved too. I want to caution younger viewers a bit if they are considering this movie, because there were quite a few sex scenes, nudity, and more adult themes. Acting was good for the most part, but it wasn't stellar and some of the supporting characters were kind of weak. I read the comment down below that said the ending was weird, but I didn't expect it to make me go what the hey just happened here, and you expect the movie to come back on and explain more, but it doesn't. So in other words I didn't love the ending, since it left me hanging. I will most likely not rewatch this movie, because while it wasn't awful it wasn't great either. If you're looking for a mature (college aged or adult) and bittersweet romance/drama movie this might be a good pick, but if you're looking for a light and fluffy love story this wouldn't be a good pick.
