| Embarrassingly bad
It has been quite a while since I've watched such a horrible high-budget Japanese film. This movie is inspired by the lyrics of DREAMS COME TRUE's masterpieces "Mirai Yosouzu" and "Mirai Yosouzu II", which roughly translates to "Future Plan".

Matsushita Nao is well-known for being a poor actress, but the male lead, Takezai Terunosuke is in a whole different dimension. This guy literally puts on a fake smile and READS his line for EVERY single scene. It's so incredible that he makes Johnny's actors in dorama look like Japan Academy Award winners. The leading couple's acting, especially in the first half where they talk to each other many times, was so embarrassing that _I_ actually felt embarrassed watching it. In addition to having the worst acting lead couple in history, the script for this movie is extremely poorly written. The "convincing of firework master" scene was so horrible that it made me laugh. Such poor story development is rare even in low-budget TV-dorama. It's a shame this movie had a really nice message for the workaholic Japan, that some things are more important than work, but its sheer cheesiness made it impossible for me to take it seriously.

At least they had enough sense to use "Mirai Yosouzu II" instead of the theme song "A.I.Shi.Te.Ru no Sign ~Our Future Plan~" for the last scene. That one scene was somewhat touching. Another positive thing about this film is that the scenery in Spain was very beautiful, and all the scenes there actually weren't cheesy. This movie is exactly opposite of typical Japanese films in this respect...

Although her acting is horrible (as usual), Matsushita Nao is beautiful as ever in this movie, and gets considerable screen time. I was able to watch the entire film because I was watching it solely for her, but for anyone who's not a huge Matsushita Nao fan like me... Avoid this film at all costs.
