The movie, “Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac” (Dareka ga Watashi ni Kiss wo Shita) is based from the novel of the same name by author Gabrielle Zevin and stars Horikita Maki, Kenichi Matsuyama, NEWS hearthrob Tegoshi Yuya and Anton Yelchin.
The story is about Naomi Suzuke who lost her memory after a bad fall in a flight of stairs. What follows are a series of questions which she now must find the answer for her to truly find herself and find love again.
This is basically the plot:
“If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss. She wouldn’t have had to go back for the yearbook camera, and she wouldn’t have hit her head on the steps. She wouldn’t have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia. She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place. She would understand why her best friend, Will, keeps calling her “Chief.” She’d know about her mom’s new family. She’d know about her dad’s fiancée. She never would have met James, the boy with the questionable past and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her. She wouldn’t have wanted to kiss him back.
But Naomi picked heads…”
Wow, the story sounded really, really good PLUS I’ve always find Horikita Maki cute and Kenichi Matsuyama totally adorable. I think this is my first time to see Kenichi playing a “normal” boy for once. Since most of his roles are pretty
deranged weird characters: as L in Death Note, as Johannes Krauser II in Detroit Metal City…and the pierced J-Rock guitarist Shin (Shinichi Okazaki) in Nana.
Tegoshi Yuya meanwhile is a member of best-selling Japanese boy band “NEWS”.
The movie opens in Japan tomorrow, 27 March 2010. I am now counting the days when I can finally have a copy of the movie (I don’t care from where or how!) cos right now, I am still smiling ear-to-ear and I’m positive it’s because of Kenichi-kun.
