Comments: I keep thinking this film by Su-ki-da [2005] and Petal Dance [2013] director Hiroshi Ishikawa will rise to the occasion. Parts of it are wonderful in their nothing-happens-ness, especially the first act about the first two unnamed girls. But then the director tries to make something happen, to create drama, with the second pair of girls (the only two that get named) Yuki and Yoko, and I'm disappointed. The third pair of girls are fine, especially the diner girl with the infectious giggle who has a crush on her boss. Maybe I'll do a fan-edit of this flick and filter out any real (fake) drama.
