Imagine Me and You in Tokyo
I know we all need a break after these crazy freaking elections. For your well deserved respite, I recommend watching Love My Life, a sweet Japanese film in the romantic tradition of Imagine Me and You or Loving Annabelle, if Loving Annabelle had had a happy ending, for the love of God. Love My Life was made in 2006, but had somehow escaped me. (Had anyone seen it? Why is it I don't hear about these things, hmm?) It is adorable and funny and has a strong story. And it's such a relief to listen to another language for a while. So different, and yet they play out their dyke drama in the street just like the rest of us.
