"If i seriously want to give a message to people then i have to challenge my limits. I crossed them. The message won't reach if i don't " - Nissy

Watching him filming the scene in th church carpark when he is praying in the rain. Its winter and he is shivering but still manages to smile and wave at the camera. He then makes me laugh when he imitates 'Miss Scorpion' and makes a silly face and voice.

The film is better the second time around, at 4 hours long its a lot to take in at once but really i totally adore the Yu and Yoko love story. I particulalry like the scene at the beach before the heavies from zero church show up and they are just sitting on the sand together.

Seeing how Nissy acts on stage, in photoshoots and variety shows clearly highlights how good an actor he is in the role of 'Yu' in 'Love Exposure'. His expressions are just perfect, particulalry when he sees Yoko walk into the classroom, and then later when Koike shows up. His ability to just go insane and scream and fight and look as though he is going crazy, i wonder where this comes from, and wht he had to tap into to get to that. Watching the film, I really believe he is Yu.

I'm definitely keen to see more of his acting once the subtitles are done for 'tumbling'  and 'ghost world'

I think i will always be extra fond of this film as this was the firts film i saw Nissy in and in turn led me AAA and the dreamwidth fandom here and on facebook. I had never heard of AAA before this film! I picked the film up at the film festival last summer (2010) based on a recommendadtion of the guy at the stall - so it was all quite random really.

I'm re-watching this now - mostly because my folks are out and its not really a film for parantalviewing. Last time i watched it in my room prayin' my mom wouldn't walk in during ..well.. most of it actually, but i am sure anyone who has seen the film knows which scenes i mean hehee.

I'm still half way through but anyway - i am watching the extras right now (which i hadn't done before) to see the behind the scenes of Nissy at work.

He is SO darned dedicated. there is a scene where he breaks a car window with bis elbow. Holy Wow does he really put some strength into it even though the glass doesn't break and its only when it REALLY hurts that actually stops. He also is talking in the van about how he injured his leg (cue a cut to him being piggy backed away at top speed injured) and how at the hospital they told him he shouldn't run cos he might snap his tendons as its cold and he hasnt had enough sleep.. he said he told them "shut Up" and then laughed.

"This story convinced me that love can do anything in this world" - Nissy

He really likes this kind of story he says but  my own main thought is that its actually a very bold and gutsy film to say you will do. it has so many elements that can 'shock' an audience as much as delight them. as a new AAA fan i have no idea what their image is supposed to be, normal or squeaky clean, nor do i know much about his own image with fans. Whatever it is, I am impressed with his choice of film and without doubt the level of acting skill he has.
