Tsukishima Shizuku was a junior high school student who loved reading when she met classmate Amasawa Seiji. Her first impression of him wasn't good, but gradually she fell for him since he pursued his dreams. Seiji learns of Shizuku's dream to become a novelist and also falls for her. The duo vow that they will 'surely make their dreams come true'. Now ten years have passed since that vow. Shizuku, now twenty-four years old, is an editor for children's novels at a publishing company. She gave up her dream of becoming a novelist, and became someone desperate to sell books. There's now distance between her and Seiji, who continues to pursue his dreams and lives abroad. (Source: Shochiku.co.jp) ~~ Adapted from the manga "Mimi wo Sumaseba" (耳をすませば) by Hiiragi Aoi (柊あおい).

Soothing but somewhat lacking

I watched this movie on a long-haul flight last night. It was a slow and peaceful watch, but it didn't wring any emotions from me.

They liked each other in high school but have been apart for 10 years. This was problematic for me from the standpoint that he could get training in cello pretty much anywhere, and she had the type of job that could be done anywhere, so the distance for that long period of time didn't make sense. There were a couple of phone calls, but that's it.

I did like the flashbacks, though neither one of them looked much different, just in hairstyle.

Since the whole of the movie was of them apart, trying to realize their own dreams, I couldn't feel their love. I honestly thought it would end differently than it did. It was a cute ending, but again, nothing tugging at my emotions.

The ML did say something to one of his orchestra friends about the FL that was very swoony, but again, didn't he think he should share this information with the FL?

The filming was kind of sepia toned, which I thought was interesting. Basically, for me, it was something to pass the time.
