Girls For Keeps
I recently watched this Japanese film “Girl” by Yoshihiro Fukagawa about four women in their late 20s and mid 30s facing different tough situations many women face in the modern society.
Yoko is a single woman who works at a stationery company and starting to fall in love with her handsome trainee who’s 12 years younger than her Yukiko works at a big advertising company, loves to dress up and has a good looking boyfriend. Seiko, a married woman with no kid & a business executive who can’t seem to get her male subordinate to take her seriously as a boss and Takako, a very hardworking single mom who works for a car manufacturer.
Each of them has their own dilemmas and issues about getting old and not getting married or not finding a boyfriend. Each girl has their own dreams and fears, I fear about not finding the right person for me whom I can spend the rest of my life with & not being able to wear the clothes I like because it’s not suitable for my age.
Indeed, being a girl is tough and as what Yukiko said
" A woman’s life A woman’s life is half pink & half blue, without the blue half life wouldn’t be so exciting."
