SHORT TAKES

Bura Bura Ban Ban


News photo

Director: Yohka Kusano

Language: Japanese

Based on Haruko Kashiwagi's popular comic, the film traces a group of high-school kids as they try to revive the school's shabby brass band, and also attempt to discover the reasons behind one of the members' weird habit: Yuriko Seryu (Beni Arashiro) goes sexually wild whenever she hears good music, and mauls the boys around her. The film's tone is uneven and the characters are flat, but singer Arashiro's performance as the mysterious Seryu saves the film from being a total bore.
