Japanese (English subtitles)
There are lots of things we expect from animated films, starting with the idea that they are going to show us things that couldn't happen in real life. This Japanese romantic drama is the exception to the rule, telling the story of school friends Taku and Yutaka whose lives are disrupted when the aloof but intriguing Rikako arrives in their lives. It's all shown in completely naturalistic - but drawn - style, paying tribute to films of the great Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu.
Terrific and unusual comedy about two wisecracking high school graduates who realise it's time to grow up.
