Such a gentle and at the same time wild examination of the fragile and always searching/confusing inner workings of teenagers. And those numerous dance scenes are just fantastic. One of my favorite Japaneses films of the 80s.
Poetic, unsettling and often nightmarish piece about a group of teenagers holed-up in a high school dealing with their own out-of-control lives, crushes, madnesses, loneliness and isolation as a typhoon descends. Fragmented sequences intercut with the storm as the kids meltdown increases include a prolonged savage near-rape (shades of Wakamatsu) and brilliant musical numbers by the girls. Disturbing, brilliant.
