The synopsis made this movie sound so simple. Originally I didn't plan on watching it because it seemed like just another take on the rich girl- poor boy plot but I was so wrong.

I decided to watch this movie because of Yoshitaka-san and this truly was a beautiful movie. There was nothing dramatic in it. There was no suspense in the story. No twists or evil plots. There were no villains or heroes and no evil parents or scheming girlfriends and confusing love triangles. But none-the-less the movie was bitter-sweet. It had a carefree air throughout yet it drew me in with every scene.

I don't think that the story is very unique or unconventional but the way everything came together left me with a warm feeling inside. The cinematography, script, directing, cast, acting, music and everything was in harmony. I loved watching this movie.

If someone would have told me this story orally then it probably would not have as much as an impact as when I saw the actors living the roles. The performances were truly exceptional. This is definitely a must watch from my side ^__^

Every person there is a yonosuke exist once in there life... maybe we dont remember who that guy is, but every time we think that person we just smile. For some reason this is the first time I experience watching a movie at the same time reminiscing about my own life, I just felt nostalgic remembering my former friends and what are they doing now.

This movie is a feel good movie, tho not a movie and tho I cant explain why, but this remind me of this one unique breath of fresh air drama called ozosaki no himawari. If you love this movie you will also love that drama in a way. The music....the music is not memorable aside from that samba music LOL. The chemistry between the girl lead and yonsuke is great...love the scene at the restaurant where she is laughing at him. The acting i was impressed with kengo kora, he just made yonosuke a fun character, I notice some yonosuke's habits when he move and i thought it is brilliant acting...I love his hair too.

The movie that will make you smile..and I thought the ending credts song great.
