Summary: This is a sweet film about two girls with a very emotionally complicated relationship. Chinatsu is a lesbian who is in love with her friend and roommate, a straight girl (Kyoko). Kyoko loves Chinatsu but doesn't want to have sex with her and resents her interference in her relationships with men. These two live so closely (they even share a single bed) that chinatsu is basically torturing herself emotionally. Yet despite the serious emotional content, it's a very sweet and funny film. Lot's of really cute slice-of-life moments helped immeasurably by the appeal of Chika Fujimura as Kyoko. It's hard not to fall in love with such a goofy and sweet character.
