Right now I am enjoying a louscious peach and a rice waffle covered with yoghurt.. You probably think I should be enjoying an ice cold drink or beer to celebrate my last day of school for this semester but since the weather isn’t that warm nor nice I didn’t feel like it. I’ll be more probably gameing Star Craft II all night long with my boyfriend . Yes, it sounds pretty nerdy, I know.. and while we’re on the subject of being nerdy and doing indoor activities during summer because the weather is totally disappointing , here two movies I haven’t seen yet and absolutely want to!
Rinco’s Restaurant or 食堂かたつむり (Shokudo Katatsumuri)
2010, directed by Mai Tominaga. With Kou Shibasaki, Kimiko Yo, Kyoko Enami
Like a Grimm’s fairy tale on LSD, with magical morsels of mouth-watering food in the mix. Female director Mai Tominaga’s second feature tells the story of a young woman (Kou Shibasaki) who loses her voice after a bad break-up with her rakish Indian boyfriend. Her process of healing involves returning to her hometown, tastefully called “Titty Mountain Village”. There, she reacquaints herself with a free-spirited mother who cohabits with a cute, talking pig. Inspired, and armed with her grandma’s secret recipe, she opens a very special restaurant…source
A Liar and a Broken Girl or 嘘つきみーくんと壊れたまーちゃん (Usotsuki Mi-kun to Kowareta Ma-chan)
2011, directed by Natsuki Seta. With Aya Omasa, Shota Sometani, Masaki Miura.
A couple of children go missing while a serial killer with a thing for stabbing young women is on the loose. The kidnapper? An impossibly pretty and quirky highschooler named “Ma-chan” (Aya Omasa). The killer? Her childhood friend, compulsive liar “Mi-kun” (Shota Sometani). Or maybe not. Pop teen romance, child sequestration and vicious torture ensue in Natsuki Seta’s twisted beyond-cute-and-evil love story, driven by rock-strong performances by the young (and rather good-looking) lads/leads. source
I hope you like the movies!
