Bitter Lemon Watched this film for the 4th time now and still thrilled with the plot twist... :)

nana858 Wow, very similar and identical to Shinzanmono especially the music and the theme. I think this movie is a special of Shinzanmono because the name of the characters such as "Kyoichiro Kaga", "Yuhei Matsumiyais", and "Ami Aoyama" are the same.
