I want to be a teenage Japanese girl too., 13 Aug 2008
A brilliant, funny and spectacularly shot film. I really can't recommend this too highly.
The two main actresses are superb, you really believe in them. Anyone who has been a teen ( I can just about remember) will sympathise with the girls desire to be someone and somewhere else, away from the dreadful , humdrum world of adults.
The film is funny, touching, beautiful and startling ( if you are not "up" on Japanese cinema). If you want something different from the average Hollywood blockbuster you could do a lot worse than start here.
