[ Story ]

Original manga AI TO MAKOTO by Kajiwara Ikki and Nagayasu Takumi is about an ultra pure love that dominated its time in the 1970's. It has been reimagined with a touch of musical comedy by Miike Takashi, world renowned award-winning director of HARA-KIRI: DEATH OF A SAMURAI and 13 ASSASSINS. Selected at Cannes Film Festival 2012. For Love's Sake depicts the torrid young love of Ai and Makoto, a delinquent boy and an innocent girl, as a childhood accident triggers misunderstandings that drive them fatefully apart and then improbably back together again in adolescence.
