Here is a little gender deconstruction curio with a uniquely Japanese flavor. This movie is based on a shonen-ai manga (a graphic novel centered on male adolescent homoeroticism typically drawn by middle-aged women and targeted at the teenage girl audience, and reflecting predominantly feminine sensibilities), with all the "boys" being performed by girls. The whole thing is directed in the style of hyper-sensitive adolescent melodrama, with eye-candy photography, mellow-but-tasteful piano soundtrack, and bizarre retro-futuristic electric appliance design. What to take out of it is very much up to you. Judging from the imdb comments, some are moved, some are amused, some are indifferent... English subtitles co-authored by no less than Donald Richie...

As a bonus, you get Thomas' Heart, the original graphic novel upon which the movie is based, as well as an article by Rosemary Iwamura deliciously entitled Letter from Japan: From Girls Who Dress Up Like Boys To Trussed-up Porn Stars - Some of the Contemporary Heroines on the Japanese Screen, which gives, among other things, some particulars about the movie...


Summer Vacation: 1999, aka 1999 - Nen No Natsu Yasumi
1989-Japan-Childhood Drama/Coming-of-Age

This poetic independent Japanese drama uses girls to play the young teenaged boys in the story, reminiscent of a traditional dramatic custom known as Takurazuka. The story concerns three friends who have remained at their boarding school over the summer break in order to further their studies independently. One boy is missing from the group, having recently committed suicide. A complicating factor in their interactions is that each one has a romantic crush on one of the others. Indeed, their passions for one another are so intense that the missing boy's suicide can be attributed to his unrequired love for one of them. When a new boy arrives on the scene bearing an uncanny resemblance to the dead boy, the three are not sure whether they are dealing with an elaborate joke, a spirit, or some other strange karmic destiny. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

Relevant as usual Helge.

Here's another article I've found (but not read yet, so don't blame me if it sucks like so much scholarship :ains: )

«Beautiful, Borrowed, and Bent: "Boys' Love" as Girls' Love in Shôjo Manga» by James Welker
Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society 2006, vol. 31, no. 3

Yeah, Trep, I've seen them both, when I was looking for info about the movie. But it seemed to me that the film trivia provided in Iwamura's article were more relevant. I've only very briefly glanced through the other sections of the article, so I can't be sure about anything much, but, as I said, what she wrote about shojo manga and its relation to this movie seemed quite informative to me...
