Another collaboration between Japan and another country?! You betcha I am so there for this! The last time we had a similar collab it was with France and as you remember we got ourselves a hidden gem in FLARE! I already know this is going to be good! I already know I am going to cry like a baby! I already know this movie is going to look absolutely stunning! And I also already know the chances of a Blu-ray of this are very slim…
Just like FLARE, LAIKA is also titled after our main girl and in this case it is Laika, played by Miyajima Sae who went from a theatre actress to winning best Newcomer Award for this movie. Our other girl meanwhile is played by multi-talented Kseniya Alistratova – skilled in dance, piano, skating, skiing and so much more.
Also just like FLARE there seems to be promise of some real serious drama in this movie that is so desperately missing in most Hollywood movies but really, I guess that is why Indie Films like this one exist – To keep Art alive!
But really, those two words ‘TABOO’ and ‘LOVE’ already had me salivating at this movie so…
Any who, this just basically finished its cinema run so the wait for that DVD is going to be torturous! But you know how the saying goes – Good things come to those who…
I’ll be waiting!

I haven’t seen such an interesting trailer in years probably, wow. Now I can only hope that this is getting a European release because I wouldn’t understand Japanese subs nor Russian 😭 A lesbian story happening in Russia alone is dramatic already, but this just seems… right. I trust in you to keep us updated!
