Goofy and sweet, Nobuhiro Yamashita’s 2005 teen flick from Japan centers on three provincial high school girls who are obsessed with playing at a local rock festival. They’ve lost their lead singer, but when a reticent Korean exchange student (Doona Bae of Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance) agrees to fill in, she gives the band the quirky edge it needs. Deadpan humor revitalizes generic elements like crushes and clueless teachers, and the visual influences range from the cover of Abbey Road to David Hockney’s swimming pool canvases. James Iha of Smashing Pumpkins wrote the energetic score. In Japanese with subtitles.
