Synopsis

Virgin twenty-something girl is neat, talented and professional, although almost too much of all these. She is an office lady who still romanticizes a school-mate, but has the opportunity to move on and forward with a man at an after-work get-together. She hesitates yearning for the man she loved at school and happens to meet him again soon enough. Will she choose option A, B or something else we can call C?

Awesome performance from the actress

It's the age-old dilemma that beset women. Who should I choose? The one I love, or the one who loves me? You're lucky if the stars aligned and both persons are the same. What if they aren't? Problem with our princess is, she's inexperienced...innocent, naive, carefree. And the scenes where this is showcased is something everyone who ever experienced having a crush can relate to.

I like how the context of love is properly laid out, comparing real love from say, crush, or infatuation in the eyes of a 20 something girl still pining for a highschool crush she never had a relationship with, let alone take her out for a date. It also explores the area of whether love can be learned, or is it something that's set in stone? This is one of the films that shows a very realistic take on the mindset of a girl. It explores her fantasies and frustrations.

(Please let me use the names Mayu, Ichi, and Ni in referring to the characters)

Mayu's escapades were very funny and real. Some of which aren't technically real as it only existed in her imagination, but this is why this movie is good. Its reality! Almost every woman can relate to her.

My favorite scene was the awakening. When she found out that the guy she fantasizes doesn't even know her name. I felt her pain, Mayu, the actress conveyed it well. It dawned on her...she was living in a world of make-believe. Her breakdown scene, though, felt too contrived and dramatic especially if you take into consideration the circumstances.

Probably the most realistic scene is when she realized she lost her only friend. And that she was lonely. That her "friends" are strangers and that she's a stranger to her "boyfriend". You can also pick a lot of insights and moral lessons from here. Not necessarily in the context of romantic love...but in life in general.

The ending went downhill for me. She became an angry brat who had to resort faking a pregnancy to restore whatever image she thought she had. She needed to grow up. It was too fictional for me. It only bounced back when it ended with a realistic tone....an open-ended ending.

Biggest success of the film is the lead actress. She was one with the character it was hard to separate the character from the actress. She was born to play this role. She owned the film, even with scenes that would have turned awkward if not done properly, she nailed it.

Miss Walter Mitty-san

Yoshiko is a shy office girl who - as we slowly realise - is even more shy than we think. She has vivid conversations with a lady on her bus to work, a local elderly fisherman, a guy in her 7-11 - but all these conversations are in her head, she has only one real friend, the girl who sits next to her in the office. Yoshiko's life is paralysed by her love for 'ichi' (one), the cool guy in her school she's been obsessed with for a decade. The problem is, Ichi was scarcely even aware she existed. Likewise, she is only vaguely aware of the doofus guy in her office (conveniently nicknamed 'ni' (two) who is clumsily trying to persuade her to be his girlfriend. After a near fatal accident, Yoshiko determines to do what it takes to engineer a meeting with ichi to find out if she can really make him love her.

This whimsical, witty and occasional surreal character study focuses entirely on Yoshiko, brilliantly played by Mayu Matsuoko, who was equally striking in last years Kore-eda film 'Shoplifters'. We see everything through this very unreliable narrators eyes. The film is ably directed by Akiko Ohku, but it is definitely overlong, it could have been trimmed by 20 minutes with no loss. The whole film is a very slight edifice, with its low budget frequently showing, but Matsuoko holds the screen in every scene so it never outstays its welcome.

The Appropriate Rom-Com

This is quite the rom-com. I may not have expected it to be my kind of movie, but I definitely enjoyed every moment of its evolving plot, silly main character, and unexpected humor. Unlike other movies of the genre, Tremble All You Want sends a beneficial and realistic message to its audience.

I really like the way characters are allowed to have more to themselves than just what is presented upfront. It's as if they were given depth as opposed to sudden realizations or changes in personality.

One character isn't all good (your ethics may vary), another isn't too bad, and a third turns out... unexpected. There's so much that plays out in this, and I'm feeling unable to explain any of it without spoilers.

There's a scene where a truth is revealed in a creative way. There's another where, let's just say, life unexpectedly takes the wheel. There's that word again: "unexpected". I think it best sums up this movie.

Give it a shot; have a laugh; warm your heart.
