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.
When Ichiko eventually comes out to her father (Ishida Ira), he confesses a surprising secret, that he is also gay and that her mother was a lesbian. Eri however, soon asks Ichiko for a temporary separation to focus on her law studies. Can Eri overcome her inhibitions and live a carefree life with Ichiko?
Directed by Koji Kawano, Love My Life was adapted from a Japanese Manga by Ebine Yamaji. Kawano has created a captivatingly sweet story of young love and first relationships.
Asami Imajuku, a supermodel in Japan, portrays the moody Eri candidly, trying to find her place in life and live up to the expectations of her family. Rei Yoshii is cute and bubbly as young Ichiko embarking on her first lesbian relationship.
