Oh My Buddha!
|Asami Usuda, Daichi Watanabe, Kazunobu Mineta|
Based on the semi-biographical novel by Jun Miura, Oh My Buddha is the classic summer coming-of-age story that is burned to a crisp with teenage angst, youthful dreams and that warm sense of folk zeitgeist of the 70s. The narrator is a first-year student at an all-boys Buddhist school. Jaded by his dull, ordinary life, he longs for the type of creative, liberal and forward life his idol Bob Dylan leads, writing rock songs alone in his room, imitating his hero’s signature croon, until one day he got invited on an island trip of “sexual liberation” with his fellow liberal friend.
