1960. Makino Kenji is an Assistant Director at a film studio. He dreams of one day becoming a director, but all he does now is run errands. Kenji’s outlet and secret pleasure is watching his favorite old romantic movie at the theater.

2.7 I didn't hate this movie. I thought it rather sweet in places and the set design was quite wonderful. Veers on the side of sickly (I'm aware I'm not the target audience) but the ending left me with a warm feeling (I will admit that this had nothing to do with the film, but instead with the emotional Japanese girl sitting next to me wiping the tears from her eyes.)
