Synopsis

Director Yamashita Nobuhiro became known 10 years ago with another pop film, the catchy and successful Linda, Linda, Linda. In La La La at Rock Bottom, Shigeo, a petty criminal with amnesia, forms part of a band managed by the teenaged girl Kasumi. She looks after Shigeo and tries to reactivate his memory. Kasumi lives with her grandfather and takes Shigeo into their house. When his dark memories return, he’s not very happy about it. This is not the usual run of romantic comedies; it avoids clichés and occasionally comprises bizarre moments, but also tender ones.
