Little Nights, Little Love is almost an anti-romcom... [but it is] a sweet, touching film bound to appeal to the romantic at heart.

Happy Valentine's Day!


LITTLE NIGHTS, LITTLE LOVE English Trailer from GAGAIntl on YouTube.

A film adaptation of the original novel Eine Kleine Nachtmusik by Isaka Kotaro.

Market researcher Sato is a dreamer who hopes for a dramatic "meet-cute" encounter for his love life. When he is conducting a survey on the street (which no one obviously cares about), an attractive woman agrees to answer. Could this be the one he is looking for?

Featuring a collection of interrelated characters including a boxing champion fighting tough battles, friends and colleagues of Sato, and a bullied boy and his sister—all these stories intertwine during the span of 10 years. Perhaps there is more to love than meets the eye.
