“Age is just a number?” – True or False?
False for me cos I’m good at maths. 😛
Anyway, another J-movie worth mentioning and stamping in this blog is Tokyo Tower. Though be warn that there is some mild bed scenes and nudity, it’s definitely NOT porn. In addition I don’t think that was the main reason it’s no longer available at crunchyroll. Notice that most movies/dramas related to Junichi Okada are put under Licensed Movies/Dramas. Hmmm……..
Anyway, luckily I get to download the movie (even though low-quality version) and its making, behind the scenes specials before they were removed from the website. Alternatively buy the dvd at cdjapan
Storyline-wise is about older woman younger man kinda thing but it’s not cute or funny at all like Suppli (Kame, Eita & Itoh Misaki) It’s rather moody, non-judgemental approach of exploring the adulterous relationship between 2 older women and 2 younger men with age gap around 10-20 years. Gasp!
Edit : Movie links here.
Jun Matsumoto portrayed a more realistic version of a younger man whose main interest in older women is only casual sex. Whereas Junichi Okada’s character Tooru is truly deeply madly painfully in love. THAT I find hard to believe, almost like watching weepy undying love of unrealistic K-drama Prince Charming Tooru. I suppose being a hopeless romantic at certain times, I’m drawn to this “unrealistic love” version between Tooru and Shifumi. Passionate, touching and sad.
Come to think of it, the reason I watched Tokyo Tower was because of Matsujun but end up looking forward towards the scenes with Junichi Okada’s character instead. Haha. Anyway, I still heart Matsujun. He is really not shy to show some skin and dares to take unconventional acting roles ne.. The way he kiss is also different from his HYD roles. Sugoi… 😉 😛
