Comments: If someone asks you if you think there is a god tell them it took a decade to get english subtitles for a Ryuichi Hiroki film starring Sakura Ando.

Hiroki film's pretty much live or die on the strength of his lead actress. They don't get much better than Ando. So Hiroki turns the film over to her. Not much more to it than that, except for "Broken Dam" from Noriko's Dinner Table. No relation to Sakura, Tamae Andô ripped me apart.

Hiroki films their scenes together perfectly, unconsciously: They meet. We know what's happening but they don't. He films their preliminary remarks to one another from a distance (Hiroki style). As things get deeper, there's only faces. Then the photo shoot with Broken Dam standing there naked.

It isn't on a whim that Hiroki has Sakura return to the photo of Broken Dam at the end of the film.

"Will I ever find something new to dream about"?

Summary: A young woman named Miyuki returns to her hometown, camera in hand, after a difficult breakup. As she walks and takes photographs, she meets a variety of people and begins to realize she doesn’t have to go through this painful time in her life all alone.
