Moving Picture

I just had the pleasure of watching a wonderful Japanese movie called Love Exposure. It's a 4 hour long epic about 3 emotionally damaged teens in Japan locked in a love triangle. Yu, the main character, is a misguided son of a priest who is doing anything to find his Mary (read Virgin Mary). The other parts of the love triangle are Yoko; abused by her father runs away with one of her father's many girlfriends, and finally Koike who was brought up by an over bearing father and is now the leader of a brainwashing cult.


The trailer does the movie no justice, and me trying to describe it would also leave most confused and put off, so it's best to just watch it. The only way to describe it is the perfect plot, perfect sound track, and an epic love story worthy of the 4 hours it takes to watch it.
