The Long Excuse
The Long Excuse is about two men whose wives die in a coach crash while on a weekend away. The men couldn't be more different from each other. They grieve very differently. And yet, life, or death rather, forces them onto a common path.
A wonderful performance by the lead actor, Masahiro Motoki - did you know that he started his career in a boy band? I can see why!!
Bonus: the cutest little girl, Tamaki Shiratori - I don't generally like movies that throw in a couple of cute kids just to appeal to a broader audience, but this little girl is the best! Ganbare Ganbare!
