Whole time I had feeling I'm watching a cross between ''Napoleon Dynamite'' and some of Jim Jarmusch's movies... but not funny ^^
Movie isn't bad altough you might get dissaponted if you get used to Takeshi's Yakuza bad ass characters. You won't find anything like that here.
It also isn't typical cute romance like some school dramas... it's more like slice of life drama.
There is also not much going on on surface... not much talking( well main character is deaf;) yet action slowly moves forward... but i guess it's the way people live at coast ;]

Even if you won't like movie I'm sure you will like music. Very nice tunes.
