1985, 114 min., 16mm, color. Directed by Shinji Somai. With Yuki Kudo, Yuka Onishi and Yuichi Mikami. Print courtesy of The Japan Foundation with permission from The Directors Company.

Youthful excitement bubbles over into reckless abandon on campus as a typhoon approaches town. Somai directs in his unique style of wide “one scene one cut” shots, and his playful scene of naked students dancing in a rainy field poignantly expresses the teenagers’ frenzied anxiety. Yuki Kudo and Yuka Onishi’s characters shine in their performances as bold, adventurous girls. Winner of Tokyo International Film Festival Young Cinema Award.
