Tokyo, the late 1960s: Students around the world are uniting to overthrow the establishment and Toru Watanabe’s personal life is similarly in tumult. At heart, he is deeply devoted to his first love, Naoko (Rinko Kikuchi), a beautiful and introspective young woman. But their complex bond has been forged by the tragic death of their best friend years before. Watanabe lives with the influence of death everywhere. That is, until Midori, a girl who is everything that Naoko is not (outgoing, vivacious, supremely self-confident) marches into his life and Watanabe must choose between his past and his future.

the cinematography and script flow like prose, like poetry; transition, in the spotlight, isn't always explosions and revolving turret guns, but the frivolity of life itself and drama, the whims that dehumanize, looking at transition, for death, will always remind us, of why we are alive, and yet we never remember.

It promises a lot more than it can possibly deliver. It fails, but Jonny Greenwood's musical score is great.

the strangest love story i've ever seen_all of the nature shots are really beautiful

A slow film touches on death and life.

It was a great experience to watch unfold the relationships of "love" and how life keeps pushing forward.

That is at least how I interpreted the movie.


not a "mans" movie..

not a 'man's movie? I thought it took a man to watch one of this length, lol.
