Movie Review: Bitter/Sweet (Nigakute amai)
This light romantic comedy is about Maki, an advertising executive, who has loathes vegetables and lives off of jelly-packs and vitamins. She connects with Nagisa, a closeted gay vegetarian boys' high school teacher who is an amazing cook. Through very improbable circumstances, Maki moves into Nagisa's house. They clash as opposites while Maki tries to find a way to get Nagisa to like her back. It is not the deepest movie but it holds the attention of the audience and has a nice simple message. The only distraction is Kento Hayashi (pictured above, right). He just looks so anime-like that he's almost not human and I found myself trying to look for signs of humanness when he had close-ups.
