10代の男女のやり取りがとてもリアルです。スーパーでの派手な遊びっぷりは見ているだけで楽しくなりました。

I loved your last film "Paired Off", and I really enjoyed "Something Like That" too. Some of my friends say they saw this film at Pleiades Film Festival and liked it a lot. We always appreciate your talents and wonderful works, and will be looking forward to seeing your films more and more. Thank you so much for your great masterpieces as always.

OK!!! First where is the supermarket manager? If I did this in a supermarket near my house the supermarket people would call the police.
Also is the boy and the girl related? Are they brother sister, cousins? Any clues?

This is an excellent film. It really appeals to people of all ages. It's very well made and a sad story for both, which happens quite often in life.

こちらの監督さんの以前の作品、「靴屋の恋」がとても好きでした。ブラジルの町並みや色彩感覚、美しい音色にうっとりしたのを覚えています。今回も素晴らしい映画をありがとうございます。楽しませて頂きました。ブラジル映画にだんだん興味が出てきました。

Your film is very sensitive, and I like it.
I have seen your last short film "Paired off"(Imparpar), and I became your fan!
