I wonder why this style of movies are so appealing to me. There is absolutely no reason why I would enjoy two young woman being jealous and all that comes with it. But still, one reason might be that I love Asami Mizukawa’s performances. Although it still feels like it is not a great reason to actually want to watch it.
Anyways, I want to see it, and it might feel like a girly emotions kind of movie, I know. But this story is something that happens all the time among groups of friends, specially if they are girls. Yes, I might sound sexist, but that is a fact, friendship between women is harder to achieve, and I mean, real friendship.
