Both CD Japan and Yes Asia have this for ¥4935 and $43.75 respectively.


Ishikawa Hiroshi, director of the much-admired Tokyo.Sora, returns with his second feature, Su-Ki-Da, for which he has assembled a stellar cast of young thesps. Miyazaki Aoi (NANA), Eita (Kuchu Teien), Nagasaku Hiromi (Kuchu Teien), Kase Ryo (Scrap Heaven), Nishijima Hideotoshi (Dolls), Omori Nao (Vibrator) and Oyamada Sayuri (Bright Future) all appear in this touching romantic drama.

17-year-old Yu (Miyazaki Aoi) has a major crush on Yosuke (Eita), the handsome young boy who plays his guitar on the riverbank everyday. He plays the same tune again and again and it fills Yu's heart with joy and longing - but also with sadness. As much as she may love Yosuke, she knows that his affections lie elsewhere, with Yu's older sister, no less. Seventeen years later, Yu (now played by Nagasaku Hiromi) and Yosuke (now played by Nishijima Hideotoshi) meet by chance in Tokyo, reawakening long-dormant emotions within Yu's heart, but also within Yosuke's.
