Reviews
ReviewSource Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Review Five college-age students in art school fumble through life lessons in Masahiro Takada's gently meandering adaptation of Chica Umino's manga romance. Sho Sakurai centers the film as "the least arty art student at the school," a genial young man who becomes the hub of a loose-knit fellowship of friends and artists (including rising Japanese star Yu Aoi of "Hula Girls" as the object of his affections). The gentle conflicts and easy rhythms and small triumphs over personal adversity are low-key almost to a fault, and the smitten stares and unrequited crushes and creative crises suggest high school melodrama as much as young-adult drama, but that restraint also is part of its comfortable charm. It's cute and sweet without getting saccharine and avoids the contrived complications of American stories of students charging the emotional and sexual minefields of adult relationships and responsibilities (no one here even makes out, let alone sleeps together). That in itself is a minor triumph in a generally contrived and sentimental genre.
