| The sweet memories of an adolescence in France.
Despite its adaptation from a rather long Japanese graphic novel, the story doesn't lack in emotion and appeal.

The two main characters are realistic and it's nice to watch something different in the Boy's Love landscape. One might be tempted to compare it to a French film, in that it focuses on the evolution of the protagonists' relation. The insights and references to nineteenth century rural France add to its charm.

One thing that might possibly disappoint is the somewhat bad visual quality, but that may be due to the fact that the film was released quite a few decades ago. Still, I highly recommend watching it, and if fairly intimate scenes between same sex characters disturb you, there's always the option of looking away.
