This Window Is Yours

The long summer holiday begins in a rural town, and Yoko (Shimizu) is taking reluctant leave of her friends while her family finalise plans to move to Hokkaido. It's clear she'd rather stay with her friend Taro (Sakai), who's laid up with a broken leg. A delicately observed, warm, languorous rear-window romance, strong on mood, group dynamics and the hestitations of teenage relationships. A highly accomplished first feature.
