Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Only three days before their high school festival, guitarist Kei (Yu Kashii), drummer Kyoko (Aki Maeda of Battle Royale), and bassist Nozumi (Shiori Sekine) are forced to recruit a new lead vocalist for their band. They choose Korean exchange student Son (Doona Bae of Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance), though her comprehension of Japanese is a bit rough! It?s a race against time as the group struggles to learn three tunes for the festival?s rock concert?including a classic '80s punk-pop song by the Japanese group The Blue Hearts called ?Linda Linda?...
A slice of Japanese school life
The first thing that stands out to me with this movie is how great the casting is. Each of the 4 main actresses portray very typical Japanese (and 1 Korean) personality types. It’s a story of 4 girls determined to play on stage during their school’s culture festival and overcoming various obstacles to do so, including boy trouble, language barriers and little practice time. It’s a wonderfully realistic story with awesome music to sweeten the deal. I highly recommend..
