Synopsis Program Note
On the summer vacation, junior high school student, group of 4, Yone, Kage-yan, Naoya and Iwa-san gathering in the usual secret base. Under the delusion by eroticism talking, they decide to make confession to the girls which they in love with. What\'s gonna happen of their love?
This is a 2012 work by ‘Momo Matsuri’, a production/screening group of young Japanese female directors. The film tells us a familiar story in which an adolescent boy, filled with curiosity about sex, has a secret fantasy but ultimately has his expectations betrayed, with the film sleekly portraying this process. The group directed a bubbly and smooth short film with a sophisticated image, rhythmical editing and camera work, and the well-directed performance of four vivid boy characters. Moreover, both the framing between indoor and outdoor and the sense of creating a film from the characters’ movements are outstanding. [HWANG Miyojo]
