AKA: Love Exposure
Genre: Comedy, Romance, "Religion"
Release date: 31 January 2009
Cast: Nishijima Takahiro, Mitsushima Hikari, Ando Sakura, Watabe Atsuro and Watanabe Makiko.
Raised as a cristian, Tsunoda Yu (Nishijima Takahiro) did not know how to sin. After the death of his mother, his father Tsunoda Tetsu (Watabe Atsuro) decides to become a preist. At first everything is fine: his father is as loving as he always has been and cares for him more than anything. Soon after, a woman enters the church, Saori (Watanabe Makiko), and begins a realtionship with her. As a catholic preist, he's not allowed to marry, so the realtionship is kept secret. Yu, now having to deal with the new woman and his 'renewed' father, keeps thinking back on his mother, and how he'd promised her that one day he'll find his 'Maria' and show her to his mother.
Saori, who had been with them for 3 monthes, gets bored with Tetsu, so she decides to leave him for a younger man, leaving Tetsu more than heartbroken.
Shortly after, Tetsu becomes focused on sin, trying to make his son admit that he sins, eventhough Yu has not done any. Feeling that his father hates him for not sinning, Yu makes up his mind to sin, in any way possible. He does numberous things, and runs back to church to confess to his father, in hopes that his father is going to be the dad he loves. Nothing seems to get to him, except one time, when Yu starts to take pictures of girls underpants, meaning becoming a peep-tom. His father hits him, and calls him a pervert, which makes Yu happy seeing that his father is the old dad again, so he decides to keep being a peep-tom. Destiny intervains, as he finally sees his 'Maria', but Yoko (Hikari Mitsushima) hates men, and to complicates matters worse, she thinks she is a lesbian, and is the daughter of Saori, who is back to be with Tetsu..
Okay, after watching 3 hours of confusion I came to the conclusion that this movie is pretty okay. The first hour I was laughing my lungs out, imagening how perverted these guys really are, I mean come on! "The art of picture peeping"? Seriously wont ever wear a skirt, even if I'm at home!! Lols, but really, he is the master of perverts. The seconds hour was confusion, only and simple confusion.. This psyko chick wants to ruin some lives, so she destroys the first love of 2 people and kidnaps a family to be part of a sect.. In the third part Yu tries to save them, and gets messier than ever... Lol, I dont wanna ruin this, but its pretty good.. Just not recomendable for people with narrow vision.. (That goes to you to Jenji)
