tamako in moratorium

Posted on: August 27, 2014

for some reason, the japan foundation didn’t plan on showing any films this year at the up film center, was originally planning to watch a film there but since they weren’t, i had no choice but to fall in line for one hour and thirty minutes at the cinemas at shang which meant an hour and thirty minutes enduring high school and college kids milling about noisily talking about homework and professors and making me feel so much older, hahaha!

tamako in moratorium

i had several choices but what appealed to me most was moratoriumu tamako or tamako in moratorium in english. it’s about a girl who graduates from college and then goes back home but only sleeps and eats and doesn’t try to find work or do chores at home, lol. i really like atsuko maeda, who is the lead in this film, because of her akb48 cuteness and then i kind of suck at household chores so i had to watch it. here’s the trailer…

this makes me want to go to kofu, yamanashi prefecture, haha. it’s where the film was shot and the place is so pretty, watching tamako in moratorium is like lounging around on a warm summer day. going back though, watching someone do nothing has never been this pleasant, sometime in the film, we find out that tamako doesn’t really know what to do with her life yet, and lots of people can relate to that, we all have those moments. the father is endearing too, he obviously loves tamako so much too, that he tolerates her not finding work and such.

in the end, things just fall into place, tamako’s dad finally gets the courage to tell her to go to work, and tamako replies ‘good answer.’ or something to that effect… the seasons pass by and tamako transforms from bum to independent kid by the end of summer… and i even got inspired to clean a little, hahaha!
