Soshi MATSUMOTO 松本壮史

Replay: It’s A Summer Film!

Nippon Visions   ½ 

The film-obsessed schoolgirl Barefoot has a passion for samurai films. However, the school film club prefers to shoot cheesy romances. Barefoot and two friends start planning their own samurai epic. IT'S A SUMMER FILM! is at once a hilarious feel-good comedy, a wistful coming-of-age tale and a declaration of love for filmmaking and being an outsider.
