[ Story ]
Yamada Akane, also known as the screenwriter for the TV drama “Jiko Keisatsu (Time Limit Investigator),” makes her directorial debut with this human drama, a film adaptation of her own novel of the same name. A 27-year old woman and a 17-year old boy have different backgrounds and live different lives, but through books, they begin to find mutual appreciation for each other. The boy is played by Yagira Yuya, who won the Award for Best Actor at the Cannes International Film Festival for his role in Nobody Knows (Daremo Shiranai). Natsuki (Sato Eriko) works in a large bookstore, and she knows the shelves on the subject of “Love” especially well. One day, a middle-aged lady creates a disturbance in the store and she meets the woman’s son, Koji, who is a high school student (Yagira).

Still a debut for a female director, still a pleasant surprise. The very first film of the author and screenwriter Akane Yamada cleverly uses ingredients become stereotyped in many seishun eiga – families anafettive, inability to love, youth problems, bullying – to take a step forward, being able to communicate effectively hardships and emotions. The protagonist, after an adolescence marked by ‘ enjo Kousai , is not capable of love. Reads a lot of books on love and the inability to love, there is also the love but in return get a little ‘fumettisticamente, a place in a library where care a personal angle on the books for people who can not love. Passively accept, partly for business purposes, a blank report with an official from a major publishing house. When he discovers that he changes the final of the novels that public thinking that so they sell more, and also modifies an advertising text written by her, abandons him, only to just passively accept his return. A day comes in contact with a high school student whose kleptomaniac mother is caught stealing in the library. It is struck by the fragility and purity of the boy, suffering from the painful relationship with the abusive father and the bullying that is covered by his classmates. E ‘attracted to the guy because he sees it as the only real person (uncontaminated?) In a world of false, in which all recite roles of convenience or who think they are convenient: publishers who handle novels, writers who accept whatever it takes to be published, the father of the boy who denies the illness of the mother and the failure of his family. Between the two you start tentatively and painfully a relationship that will evolve gently, without forcing pleased automated order you would expect. As the title says, “everything ends at the sea”: there is set the last scene of the film but above kindred minds eventually meet, seems to show us the Yamada. A film on the truth, on being real.
Among the actors stands Yagira Yuuya ( We will give shiranai ), who infuses his character a rare dramatic intensity. Charmingly convincing Satou Eriko, seen before in comic roles or sensual icon ( Cutie Honey, Funuke domo, kanashimi no ai wo put ). In smaller roles two likely future star: sympathetic Yoshitaka Yuriko ( Hebi ni piasu , the drama Shiroi haru ) and especially the enigmatic and disturbing Andou Sakura ( Ai no mukidashi, Oretachi ni wa asu naissu ).
