Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac

Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac -2010

Naomi forgot 4 years worth of memories when she slipped down the stairs. She meets a boy she has never talked with before in school, a boy who's claims to be her friend and her supposed boyfriend. It's based on a novel of the same name by the American author, Gabrielle Zevin. I love the montage of pictures, retro-ish feel of the movie and the indie-esque soundtrack. Overall, I just couldn't connect to the heroine played by Maki Horikita. (Hana Kimi, Atashinchi no Danchi). Being a person trying to find herself I was expecting her to be more emotional, more inquisitive. But she just stike me as empty and selfish. I was expecting a pop and light movie but instead it was dark with suppressed emotions and unanswered questions. It also stars Yuya Tegoshi (The Wallflower). Also, Maki had a gender bender moment in the movie. lol.
