Ai To Makoto

Ai To Makoto (For Love’s Sake) is a 2012 romantic, musical Japanese film by director Takashi Miike (Japan’s equivalent to Tim Burton) Based on a mid-1970s manga by Ikki Kajiwara. It was shown in the Cannes Film Festival.

Ai to Makoto

Set in Tokyo in the early 70’s, this is the story of pretty Ai, played by Emi Takei, a daughter of wealth and entitlement, top of her class and an outstanding athlete and troubled Makoto, played by Satoshi Tsumabuki, a hardened loner from the wrong side of the tracks with a big scar on his forehead and a huge chip on his shoulder. Don’t take this movie seriously, as it keeps breaking out in musical numbers and fights.
