The movie tells the story of Taishin Mamiya (Yoshikazu Kotani), a magazine editor who had to interview the young high school model, Noeru Kisaragi (Takumi Saito). Despite Noeru's bad attitude, an enchanting picture of the ocean Noeru drew leads Mamiya to invite him out for dinner. They connect at the restaurant, but in the bathroom Noeru solicits Mamiya sexually. The next morning, Noeru's office calls the magazine office where Mamiya works and tell them that their editor was rude and he has to come and apologize. When Mamiya goes to Noeru's house to deliver the apology, he sees Noeru with a dirty-looking man in the bedroom. Mamiya is shocked to discover at this moment that his interest in Noeru goes beyond article research - he truly wants to know more about him. Besides this there is also Noeru's classmate Chidori Furumura (Hiroya Matsumoto) who loves him very much and becomes jealous of the upcoming friendship of Noeru und Mamiya.
My opinion: ★★★★★
If I remember right this was the first BL movie I ever watched - and I was very impressed. It's a really wonderful movie, heart-touching and unfortunately very sad. I cried very much at the end. Something really great is the point that they always show quotations of famous people about love which are connected to the story. A most have seen movie for all fans of BL! And also Takumi Saito is great (^-^)~
This movie was released on DVD in 2006 and later there was another movie made for cinema. The story of the movie was adapted as a manga with the same name by Kaim Tachibana.
