First in a series of films drawn from short stories by Mitsuyo Kakuta on the theme of the gift, it is a small film, also in duration, but not entirely insignificant. The story is that of an ordinary love story between two young but its peculiarity is that it is told as a story of a separation, or rather a “lasciamento”, with him who download her like a bolt from the blue because it is in love with another. Flashbacks of the most beautiful moments of love ended alternate to the painful acceptance by you of the reality of the facts.
“Aikagi” means “duplicate of a key” and is the gift that she receives in order to have free access to his house. Over the love story, the memory remains. coated packaging with no particular psychological excavation of the characters but peaceful atmosphere altogether acceptable.
Hirosue Ry Oko appear to say a little ‘better than usual, and when, by the book of the young Japanese girls, he cuts his hair because he has lost the love, it’s even pretty.
