Superb movie
Toire No Hanakosan is actually from 1998; the original 1995 version also starred Maeda Ai, although she played a boy in that version. The first version was intended more for an elementary school age audience and, although its premise and plot was more plausible than the 1998 version, it had an ending that was a major disappointment. The 1998 version is superior to the 1995 movie. Even though the premise of the 1998 version is a little less plausible, the pace and performances help to make it an exceptionally good film. Hopefully the 1998 version will be released someday with English subtitles so the U.S. audiences can enjoy this clever thriller.
