Main Actors: Aoi Miyazaki, Kengo Kora, Kenta Kiritani, Yoichi Konto, Ayumi Ito, ...
"Solanin" is the story of the girl Meiko (Aoi Miyazaki) working as an office lady in a job she hates. Her boyfriend Naruo (Kengo Kora) has a part-time job as an animator and lives with her in the apartment. He has a rockband together with his college friends, but the band hasn't got out of the "practice" stage.
One day, Meiko decides she has had enough with her office job and quits. When Naruo hears of her decision, he worries about their lack of income and how live should go on. Meiko saved enough money to live for a year without working and hopes to find herself during this time. Also she would like her boyfriend to become serious with his band and supports him. Meiko tries to find happiness, but suddenly some things happen...
I watched this movie a few days ago and while the first hour of watching I thought that it's kind of boring. But I went on watching and suddenly it became really interesting - and I even cried very badly at the end. By now I can say that it's a wonderful movie with a very touching and sad love story. A must-have-seen-movie for all Aoi Miyazaki fans!
I really like the song Meiko is singing at the end - the song also the movie is named after: Solanin.
