Editorial Reviews

Opposites attract in this charming love story from Japan. Ichiko is a happy go lucky girl who falls in love with serious Eri, a fellow student at the university. Ichiko wants to tell the world about their love---beginning with her father. But gay romance is not quite as easy as Ichiko envisions. When she comes out, she learns surprising family secrets. And Eri's studies soon are keeping them apart.

Customer Reviews

Some say its a little flat but it does tug at the heart strings a bit.

It reminds you of how good it can be to be alive, hence the title, and how enjoyable things can be.
Michiru
Eri however, soon asks Ichiko for a temporary separation to focus on her law studies.

I watched this movie today. It is a good movie, not fantastic but nice enough. I agree with another reviewer who said the first part of the movie and the rest are very different, almost like another movie. The beginning of the movie is a sweet depiction of the relationship between the two twenty something year old women. In the middle it is less frothy and has more conflict and angst. I won't mention the ending; I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone.

If you are looking for steamy and graphic sex scenes you won't find that here. This movie reminds me of our lesbian movies of 10 or 20 years ago. It is more simple and innocent than the usual fare today. Knowing nothing of lesbians in Japan I don't know whether this movie is groundbreaking or usual. I wish there was an interview with the writers and directors of Love My Life and perhaps a documentary on lesbian life in Japan. It would be helpful to watch this movie in the context of GLBT life in Japan.

The extras on the DVD are few. They include deleted scenes, without subtitles and a Japanese trailer.

Well this is no Hollywood movie by any means but its a cute movie all the same. I can relate to this movie in some ways which is why I loved it. I am more like Eri, (Yes, I'm female) the serious one. My girlfriend is the happy, bouncy one like Ichiko. Ok, maybe not that bouncy but pretty close. Lol Our personalities are very different, but we still click and we love each other. Over all I think the movie was real. At least to me. Some say its a little flat but it does tug at the heart strings a bit. So I say take it for what it is, a cute movie about two girls in love.

I must say, this movie depicted one of society's flaws in an enjoyable way. In my opinion, this was a top movie in its category. I enjoyed more than "Spider Lilies" and "Saving Face." I highly recommend this movie.

This is a very interesting movie. It is not what I expected, but there were few interesting scenes that I've enjoyed. Overall, I like this movie. Thank you.

Format: DVD
Cute, bouncy movie about two young lesbians in Japan who decide to come out to their families. One girl has a pretty easy time of it, and in fact gets one upped by her dad when he happily returns the favor of her honesty with some revelations of his own. The other girl has a grumpy dad and more of a problem with the whole thing. But things never get too depressing, and in fact it's easy to believe from the overall fun, upbeat tone that "Love My Life" was adapted from a Japanese manga series, the Japanese version of comic books. Pretty innocent overall, this movie would probably get a PG-13 here in the states if not for our manic paranoia about gay subject matter and even fleeting nudity. Extras consist of a few deleted scenes (without English subtitles, unlike the film itself) and a nice selection of trailers highlighting other interesting-looking fringe movies. "Love My Life" isn't very memorable, but one can do a lot worse.

This award winning lesbian drama constitutes a touching and moving love story revolving around the love affair between two college students - Eri, whose father and mother are divorced, given the fact that they decided to marry out of societal pressure during the time of Victorian morals, where homosexuals were the subject of extreme discrimination as homosexuality went against the norms of society, and, resultant of that, caved in to pressure to engage in a heterosexual relationship and tie the knot in marriage and father a child, in a society where marriage and having a family were terminal values, whom they, nevertheless, treasured and loved beyond all measure, from whom they kept their homosexual tendencies a secret for fear of estranging themselves from their daughter only to discover that she was having an affair with Ichiko, and, having so discovered, Eri's father - with whom she was staying, given the fact that he had won custody over her following the divorce, who, himself, was having an affair with another man (the affair of which he kept a secret until he discovers the fact that Eri was a lesbian, and, having done so, blurts out his and his ex-wife's deep harbored secret, and encourage her relationship with Ichiko, and arrange for her to meet his lover, under the latter's encouragement), resultant of which, Eri and Ichiko ardently pursue their relationship and, while at a beach, encounter Eri's father's college professor - who herself was a lesbian and having an affair with another women (also a college professor), and, being gay, also encourage Eri in her relationship with Ichiko (whose father, and mother have successful careers as lawyers and harbor unrealistic expectations of their daughter by expecting her to walk in their footsteps and establish a career for herself as a lawyer, and.Read more ›
