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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice enough... August 29, 2008
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute January 31, 2009
By T.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love My Life was amazing... July 12, 2011
By Nads
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

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.
