A drama to calm the soul.
"Tsubaki Bunguten" has a very beautiful and smooth story, pleasant to accompany from the first to the last episode.
A very harmonized drama, like calming cinematography, enlightenment, scenery and effects, all combine with the story, everything matches that grandmother's air.
The cast helped and very, consistent performance and very well represented by the beautiful protagonist, embellished by a simple but beautiful costumes that gave the grand finale of a dazzling drama. Of a drama that warms the soul.

Proof that opposites can work and that perfectionists are not boring.
Fun and practical where two diametrically opposed individuals begin to quarrel with each other but end up falling in love.
On the one hand, Lu Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro), the CEO of a multibillion-dollar international company called VN Group, which flies around the world to evaluate the hotels of its competitors in search of buying them or not.
On the other hand, Gu Shengnan (Zhou Dongyu), a junior consultant at the Rosebud boutique hotel in Shanghai, where Lu Jin and his assistant assistant Richard Meng (Sun Yizhou) have just become interested in business.
It is not just your status that is different; Their personalities are so different Lu Jin is a clinically managed individual who prides himself on being a perfectionist; (I am also and I am proud of that too) Whereas Shengnan is generally a free adventurer whose cheerful attitude to life is only disturbed by her recent separation from the general manager of the hotel (douche-bag), Cheng Zixian.
The result is quite contrary, mixing the familiar elements with the ingredients of a culinary comedy that proves to be the inspiration and, even if you feel familiar in the set, there is no denying that the film is refreshing, delicious and often hilarious.
A film that shows and demonstrates confidence, discipline and clarity right from the start, not exhibiting any of the flaws that usually weigh first.
True to its title, "This is not what I expected" is unexpectedly pleasant, the jokes land where they should, the novel is sweet and the presentation is vivid, lively and attractive. He also has a comically sharp timing and excellent chemistry that you'll miss, thanks to the charismatic characters.

So cute but so ugly.
One of the super positive features of "My Egg Boy" is the symbolism to be found from the eggs and from aging to expiration in a literal and literally unique way. Totally charming. The metaphorical meanings found in this film point to our own biological clocks, leading to a life lesson of openness present in us from birth.
The instinctive biological clock of procreation strikes women and many men in their twenty-third and thirty-fifth years scientifically proven. Each minute, hour and year imagined can seal a person's life as the expiration date on an egg carton. This bodily urge can become a strong underlying catalyst for emotions in romantic relationships. This describes the plot of "My Egg Boy" in a beautiful story of love and life.
A slightly neurotic Zeng Mei Bao works for a frozen food company as a specialist and product tester. As a younger associate in the office, she is in charge of a new advertising push to attract younger customers to the brand. Recently divorced before even being able to have a honeymoon, Zeng Mei Bao longs for being pregnant, but her dedicated dedication to work cost her a husband. Then she crosses the path of A-Shi an aspiring chef and the novel begins ...
As Zeng Mei Bao makes the freezing of her eggs to ensure a pregnancy in old age and buy her time for a day to get married, "My Egg Boy" becomes a big tangent when it comes to romance in high fantasy where the Actors portray their frozen eggs and sperm in absurd costumes inside cryogenic storage. Exactly, in addition to the novel the film shows a perspective of the type "what the eggs and sperm think about being frozen".
Two in particular, a sperm boy (Huai-Yun Zhan) and an egg girl (Lyan Chen), are responsible for "theoretically" simulating through Zeng Mei Bao the prospect of a love life between her and A-Shi. It sounds absurd, but it was a great balcony from the director Tien-Yu Fu.
This thread of history reveals an entire imaginary society bathed in white with a peculiar class system of young behavior, modern society.
It looks like a silly movie, but it is not, in the end it makes a lot of sense. The lovable romance between the caricatured reproductive cells parallels the chemistry of the two humans who are beginning the relationship. Cinematography is a beauty eyelash absent from vibrant cinematography to blend the sunny and seasonal exteriors with the interior of an egg and sperm in search of the dream of fertilization and the beginning of the offspring.
Driving an excellent woman-centered resource of impatience and initiative of her character to find love where she is not a cornucopia of quirks. Instead, she is approachable and sociable, does not look for the perfect pair because she knows that she is living reality, she wants to find a husband to marry and have the very desired child.
In the same way, A-Shi could have established himself to be the handsome, rich and difficult. Instead he is simple, focused on the job he was not looking for a novel, but thanks to Zeng Mei Bao decides to date since he also knows that he is with an age to fix himself.
In general, the strength of "My Egg Boy" is in dynamic writing to weave magic and practice with fertile imagination. What begins as a whimsy evolves rather warmly to something ravishingly sincere both within dating and beyond, the basic human need for dialogue has become a desirable community experience among people interested in spending time with each other. Simply put, sharing feelings and talking is an essential activity for dating. For example, steak lovers probably should not marry vegetarians. In "My Egg Boy," the ironic humor is found between the organic chef and the "vendor" of processed microwave food. In other words, opposites attract each other, thanks to sincerity and dialogue. A proof who the people are and can be so much more than the eyes can see, just give the opportunity. You are never fully prepared for love, and you will never be fully ready to have a child, but talking is a good start. Recomended!

A balanced movie!
Right from the cast that interacts nicely with history, balancing the impending tragedy with gentle humor and a quirky procession of quirky characters, the film features an impressive collection of characters and bold audacious performances.
Miyazawa is painfully fragile and unselfish, while Odagiri's wifey husband is nice. But who really shone was 11-year-old Sugisaki Ito as the most courageous young generation, taking on the pain and responsibility, while maintaining his youthful life.
Directed by Ryôta Nakano who made a dazzling script, it provides an emotional load of tears as the family history intertwines with humor and marked with multiple surprises.
The sound is solid, but the full surround effects seem to be lacking, in the scenarios part does not deserve to be.
Overall "Her Love Boils Bathwater" is cheerful and adds to every scene. A balanced film that deserves to be watched.

The opening is already a show apart.
"Hiyokko" is a drama that speaks of a rural Japan in the Olympic age of 64. A drama that adds cultural values to a story rich in details told by an acting cast aided by a beautiful soundtrack and flawless cinematography. Instead of having complex and fanciful themes, "Hiyokko" stands out for its simple and classic history with a focus on everyday life. As it says: Happiness is in the simple things of life. Good Drama!

The drama itself follows a genre of juvenile romance of the ordinary type; moreover, the drama itself attempted to portray the group of young people they wanted to meet, but adding a gameplay aspect within it, which by the way was technically good, CGIs are level acceptable, which, pulled the drama offering something new. Although the story bit dragged and sometimes jumped from the context, provides entertainment, the story is not bad, has flow and also the friendship built through the game are strengths. As for the characters, the progress of all the characters, especially Lu Yu Chen and Xia Xiao Ci are convincing.

The stories do  not end, they become seeds for the next, proving once again that good  deeds create ripples in the quiet pond of human experience ... This is  just one of the many lessons that "Namiya Zakkaten no Kiseki" propose,  sometimes you do not see the effect of your good deeds  because you do not have an omniscient view, and sometimes the  far-reaching effects may just astound you. The feel of place and time is strong, and the 1980s are well portrayed. Nostalgia is in full bloom. One of the joys of the film is the fascinating art of the written word. In  short there is a lot of blue-eyed nostalgia in "Namiya", especially for  the way things happened in 1980, when the country was not yet harmed by  wealth and things were more relaxed. Even in Tokyo, there  were hardly any convenience stores and housewives routinely bought in  neighborhood establishments like Namiya General.

Originality and good music.
A young film that deals with a theme about life and death in the perspective of youth rebellion and the conservatism of the elders under the narrative of the diversity of life, of love and of the silence of those who end up saying goodbye to someone.
Three sisters who carry the dream of being Idols, see the loss of someone an opportunity to realize their dreams, undoubtedly the originality of "The Farewell Girls" is a milestone for a Chinese production, after all, as the title suggests, is a film That will break and not create barriers. Recommended!

First of all it is necessary to understand that Roman pornography is different from ordinary pornography, it can roughly be said that Roman pornography seeks the more philosophical and natural side, since common pornography is the most perverted and immoral side of sexual relations, explicit.
"White Lily" is a film yui or shojo-ai, in my view was not one of the best, has defects, one of them was the intimate demonstration of affection of the couple, got it wrong, the chosen positions vulgarized the thing, Hideo Nakata maybe not Has understood this point well, after all, the preliminaries started well, but the climax devalued, the issue is already controversial, and demonstrating in a "wrong" way only makes things worse.
In contrast, the perspective was good, although in private opinion, I think from the moment that there is a relationship, indifferent to the sexual option, neither side should give freedom or have eyes for others (a) s ... Psychologically speaking People are never completely satisfied with what they have, maybe this is one of the reasons to betray, "if I am with someone and the other or the other shows interest, why not," the problem that comes after the consequences, is That thing, the neighbor's grass is always the greenest, the queue at your side always goes faster ...
From this perspective the feature became "vulgar" instead of demonstrating a positive point of view, it demonstrated a negative view of lesbianism. It remains to know which side the director chose, whether it was even this ambiguous perception that the director proposed or he gave that basic slip.

"Secret Fruit"  has nothing innovative, it follows the romantic story of two teenagers, a  drama not so cute but not so serious adult novels, is a romantic drama  typical of pre-teen without differential, the soundtrack is  good, the cast is wonderful but lacking footprint, the couple although  acting does not avenge, does not roll that chemistry on the scene. Cinematography  is cool, far from surprising, leaves the film harmoniously romantic but  not enough to be a beautiful and touching movie of first love.

Although not so different from many other Japanese melodrama movies in recent years, "Butterfly Sleep" is to some extent distinguished by its interesting setting and frank story, and its overall result is fun and touching enough for recommendation. It may be predictable, but this is a well-made movie, full of genuine feelings, and certainly wins its tears in the end. Butterfly Sleep may not offer great surprises, but through Jeong's firm and balanced control, it becomes a comforting journey through a familiar tale punctuated by sober pockets of emotional intensity.

The film is very fragmented in the plot, this fragmented progress story has nothing to do with Pil looking for Mi Mi musical talent. In fact, although Pil sends her a text message in English that, without the context, looks like random spam, her eventual meeting is mere coincidence. By the time Pil finds out who Mi is, the film is almost finished and the revelation is meaningless. I do not think they even get to talk about Mi's relationship with Yoon-hee, another subplot that absolutely gets nowhere.
That's really all that "Live Again, Love Again" is. This is a movie full of various nonsense stories that are almost entirely underdeveloped. There are no dramatic bets. At one point, Pil tells a producer to go for a walk and there are no negative consequences for that. Pil is apparently so rich that he can take a random vacation to Vietnam whenever he wants. And yet, should we feel sad because Pil is an idiot who lost his girlfriend because of a stupid argument they had about money?

Cinematographically  the film is very good, not being a big fan of period films I can assure  you that "Eternal Wave" really pleased me, cinematographically is  perfect, we see scenarios rich in details, camera movements that give a  sense of reality. The soundtrack though is not something that surprises, it's nice, the cast felt good, yet acting did not convince me. As  the story of "Eternal Wave" is very well aligned within the premise,  solid, engaging and mostly well polished, there are no loose ends nor  highs and lows.

Although it is a  low budget job, director Eiji Uchida did a very good job from the  relationship of domination and bullying control of the high school era,  the control relationship is reversed through death ... The narrative  flow of development is very comfortable, it's not a heavy  BL film that represents gay discrimination and love from childhood  through adolescence, although it's not a direct LGBT job.
In  short "Double Mints" is a manga project that projects as a fantasy to a  forbidden world in which it does not enter, but it is strongly  impressed that the film is a reality and a terrain with more realistic  brushstrokes.
