Saraba Eiga No Tomo Yo Details


Male bonding and romantic love are the two major elements in this first-time drama from movie critic Harada Masato. Shuma (Naohiko Shigeta) is whiling away time, waiting to hear about his acceptance into the university. A favorite way of passing time is to go to the movies and on one of these excursions he makes friends with Dan (Takuzo Kawatani), an obsessive movie buff. As their friendship grows, Minami (Atsuko Asano) enters the picture. Shuma carries a big torch for her until he finds out that she is no more than a "gun moll." Shuma's anger at Minami's gangster connections makes him say a few things to Dan that are ill-advised. Shuma forgets about it soon afterwards, but unfortunately, Dan does not. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
