At twenty Kaede is not thrilled about her apprentice job at a hair salon or her man or her town or anything much really. Then she hears that Takuya, a former crush, is back in town from Tokyo after several years. Kaede is not loyal so she is interested. Takuya, however, comes across as not.

User Reviews: The script probably times at just over an hour so I guess they had to pad the time with extended scenes of bike riding & menial action. It also takes ten minutes in to find out what this movie might be like.
Still was enjoyable. Just wished they made up the time differently or a shorter movie. Some people will get bored during the bike riding. Yes I really hated that and I figured they showed it a lot as there would be an accident on the bike!
As for the rest of the movie. The characters were interesting though not very complex. The story and characters don’t develop very far. Again it should have been a 60 minute movie. So it will at times move very slowly. If you are looking for any action, nope. Everything involves the relationships with a side story on her job. That’s about it. If my review sounds boring, then you might find the movie boring. If you are a bit intrigued by my review, then go watch it. James st don’t blame me for the bike riding!
