Comments: I think I'm down on films that play with multiple timelines. Here we are now; here we are ten years ago; here we are 20 years ago. Lather, rinse, repeat. Nobody in the film grabbed me ... well, when that little girl asked "Can we walk home from school tomorrow?", that was brave and wonderful. And then when she showed up with an umbrella to walk her crippled friend to school after they had a fight, Priceless. This film's heart was in the right place. It just didn't flow very well for me (due to my bias).


Summary: Based on a novel by Kiyoshi Shigematsu, Ryuichi Hiroki‘s “Your Friend” tells the story of a lifelong friendship between two girls. Emi (Anna Ishibashi) has a degenerative kidney disease and Yuka (Ayu Kitaura) has a limp from a car accident which was partly caused by Emi. Although Yuka initially holds a grudge, the two eventually grow closer due to their mutual understanding of what it’s like to be impaired. The two of them experience many trials over the years, but through it all they remain friends.
