Farewell Song, the movie

Released in Japanese theaters on May 31 Farewell Song (Japanese title: Sayonara Kuchibiru/さよならくちびる) has made it into the selection of various international film festivals since that release. It’s been available on DVD & Bluray since October 25 and the two editions offer interesting material: making of documentary, unreleased scenes, events, various clips. CD JapanAmazon Japan

Farewell Song is a Gaga production, yet, it definitely has some indie flavour attached to it. Not much happens in terms of action, no spectacular twist either, however it is more than just a pleasant watch thanks to director Akihiko Shiota‘s fine script and the remarkable perfs of its three main actors: Ryo Narita (Shima the manager and roadie), Mugi Kadowaki (Haru the songwriter) and Nana Komatsu (Reo/Leo the singer).

Below is a celebration with screencaps from the film and the ‘making of’ plus a few scenes (short excerpts only).
