Umi ga kikoeru (I Can Hear the Sea) (The Ocean Waves)
The main character travels to his hometown for his high school reunion. During the trip, he recalls the memories of the days in high school. Friendship, subtle love, a trip to Tokyo and so on all came back to him as the film evolves.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's the boys' close friendship and the very Japanese dilemma of individuality versus social cohesion. This wistful meditation on maturity echoes and eddies around a trip to Tokyo in the past and a chance moment on a Tokyo train platform in the present"
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"An interesting, amusing, and cleverly composed story of first love..."
‑ Mike Edwards, What Culture
