Synopsis

Middle schooler Alice has a crush on a high schooler, and points out to best friend Hana the 'younger brother' Miyamoto, who is constantly engrossed in his Rakugo book. Alice's crush soon dies out, but Hana develops an increasingly affectionate crush on Miyamoto. As high school begins, Hana tries to get closer to Miyamoto and joins the Rakugo club. While following Miyamoto home one day, she sees him walking straight into the garage door and passing out. When he wakes up, Hana convinces him that the accident caused him to forget that she is... his girlfriend.

Both films are about high school students. Though one is about a friendship and the other a romantic relationship, they share a similar tone.

Liked it very much. I'm agree with @touka, there wasn't even one moment where i wanted to skip something. I liked the character of Arisu. And Aoi Yu is so pretty! But Hana seems to be a bit annoying. And that guy, Ma-kun, he is a bit.. slow)) Looked liked he was in his own world sometimes. But the plot, and acting were just wonderful!

I couldn't disagree more with the two below me. There wasn't a single moment in this film where I wished I was watching something else and I didn't think it dragged at all.

It's so exceptionally directed and beautifully shot, both female leads give such sincere and powerful performances and some sequences (alice in the rain, alice with her dad, the dance) are almost too good to be true.

Shunji Iwai, as always, did an absolutely fantastic job. I just wish he would hurry up with his next film.

Quite interesting idea, but not nearly as interesting film. The story is quite simple and the film has great moments - like Alice's dance in the end, but I really don't see a reason for this to last more then 2 hours! I was bored, had to pause the film million times - that was very very bad!

This is a slow movie, maybe even boring, but when you have nothing better to do, it's actually cute to watch :)
