just finished watching another Japanese film called Solanin. based off of a popular comic book, this story is of a cute couple trying to make a life for themselves. whether it's quitting their jobs or trying to continue their rock band, they face tough situations where the only thing they can do is keep going. this film is definitely about pushing yourself forward even when you feel there's no hope. as they say in Japan: がんばってください ... and i especially love the pretty cinematic scenes where they play very light and calming electric guitar solos. its very uplifting :-)

the main actress, Aoi Miyazaki, is also in another movie called Heavenly Forest (ただ君を愛してる) which i also recommend watching. its a cute film that focuses a lot on photography. you can watch it here too!

* ps: check out Super Youth for some upcoming posts i just did! *
