I remember well that Satoshi Tsumabuki, the lead actor, said this at the time of the release. "This is a real romance movie"
The point that I especially recommend this movie to women is to see the strength and beauty of women in the appearance of "Jose" who lives forward while getting a big sense of loss by having a romance and losing it. Because you can do it.
Tsuneo, a college student who plays the role of Satoshi Tsumabuki, is an ordinary college student who is well-mannered, has convenient sex friends, and is good at the world.
One day, Tsuneo meets a lonely girl who is lame. A self-proclaimed Josee played by Chizuru Ikewaki. Jose is the name of a character in a novel by French writer Francoise Sagan, and her real name is Kumiko.
Tsuneo feels "something she doesn't have," and is attracted to Jose, a literary girl who has both habits and habits.
Tsuneo and Jose start living together after the death of her grandmother, who lives with him. Sweet and fun days between young lovers.
Tsuneo, who wants to take on her whole handicapped Jose and live her life, sets out on her car journey to introduce her to her family.
However, Tsuneo turns back a little more.
Despaired by himself, Tsuneo clings to Jose's knees and cries like a child. Tsuneo was a kind man, but he was an infinitely weak man.
After that, on the bed of the love hotel where he stayed, Jose thinks while watching Tsuneo sleeping next to her. The feeling of "seeking people" that he didn't know when he lived lonely. The feeling of "I want to be with people forever". When he was trapped in his own shell, Jose realized again that he could have lived without knowing the "sense of loss" of losing a person, and he was frightened.
A few years later, Tsuneo leaves Jose.
Tsuneo then goes to see her new girlfriend on her feet. And he should have a good date with her ...
Tsuneo crouches on the street, blinds his eyes, and cries like a child.
I couldn't introduce Jose to her family, just like that day.
And one of Jose.
He rides in a brand new electric wheelchair and dashing out into town.
Wheelchairs are things that Tsuneo never tried to buy, even though he said he would buy them.
Jose refused to do so because he wanted him to carry it on his back all the time. However, Jose is no longer in love with Tsuneo.
A man named Tsuneo was an infinitely weak man who cried in front of her new girlfriend, thinking of her old lover. But he was a dear man because of his weakness.
Jose, on the other hand, lives in deeper loneliness than before because he enjoyed the joy of living with his beloved man for the first time when he met Tsuneo.
Still, Jose lives without showing a single tear.
Although he is deeply hurt, Jose tries to take it and live.
Her appearance is a very good movie that encourages many women who are trying to survive their suffering and sadness.
It is a movie that reminds us that beauty of women is strength.
