短編映画「エチュード」ETUDE – Short Film Eng Sub


“Etude” What are you doing here?
– That’s my line. I never thought you would be still here.
– I never thought you would come back here. So, what are you doing here? Nothing. In any case, you’re at just the right time. What’s the matter with your finger? It’s injured in an accident when I carried my sofa
– Are you OK? It’s not broken. Take-chan said for me to take a day off because it’s impossible to toss the flying pan in such a finger. he is a nice guy as usual. It’s not a big deal but he says it will affect the taste of dish. You should have asked moving service.
You luck a sense of professionalism very much. Take-chan exaggerates it. It’s not a big deal. I’ll be going now. You have something to do here, don’t you? Well… It’s not a big deal. I’ll wait upstairs until you finish it. Are you sure? I was just leaving but If I leave,
you can’t lock the door of this room. I came back here to look for what I left behind. Something left behind?
Nothing here anymore. It was not until I unpacked my things that I realized I had left it behind. Probably, it’s a small thing so I forgot to pack it up. So I’ll try to search here. What do you look for?
– Well, it’s not serious. I see… I’ll wait upstairs. 2 years ago After all, I like here. Too old. That’s just the right rent. Your shop is some distance from here. That’s OK. I’ll change my shop If we live here. What the hell?
You had so much trouble finding the job, don’t you? Well, shall we decide after checking the other two apartments? These days it’s rare that we can go up on the apartment’s roof like this. The station is this direction, isn’t it? No, this direction. Your house is that direction, isn’t it? No, my house is that direction. Then my house is that direction, isn’t it? No, mine is there so yours is there. Former inhabitants didn’t like this table, I suppose.
That’s why they left this behind. They moved to smaller apartment, perhaps. I want to buy a new one. It’s expensive to buy a similar table.
That’s a waste. No way! It’s impossible! It’s OK. My sofa may barely fit this corner. I don’t like it. Why? I want to buy a new one at least. Oh, not again!
It’s impossible to get such a design anymore. You know I did part time work for buying it in my school days… OK, then I’ll bring my wardrobe, too. Give me a break! That’s too big for this room. Hey! I’m sorry.
I was wrong. I got excited when I decided to live here. It’s impossible for us to live together, I suppose. What are you talking about? We do nothing but quarrel. I was wrong.
I’m sorry. I suppose we can live together easily if only a year.
We could enjoy to live together for a few years. But then what will happen for us? It’s no use thinking about that far ahead. The worst answer. That’s the way it is.
In a few years, I will change, You will change, too. Besides, we don’t know what will happen around us. I don’t want such a dull answer. What? Are you trying to fight me? Say the words. The words that your trainer often said. You will win? You will lose?
Which do you want? You will win? You will lose?
Which do you want? I never make plans that far ahead. On the match day, my stomach might start hurting,
my opponent might become strong suddenly… It might be hot, cold, rainy… That’s enough! Stop teasing me.
We do not fight a kickboxing match. Sorry. I’m not angry. How about climbing there. It’s a great view. I picked up something good in the room. Keychain without chain. Compass? Yeah… The south and the east. Do you want this?
– No, I don’t. It’s useful for you
because you are not good with directions. I’m not in trouble at all,
and I dislike a thing that was picked up. Well… I also don’t need this, so I’ll throw it away. We need to throw away the table first.
Let’s go to buy a new one. I intend to sell my sofa. You don’t need to sell it.
Please bring it here. I’ll sell it.
– Bring it please. I’m here, Like a hero. Hero of anime or something. Did you find it? Do you want me to search together?
– No I don’t. I am satisfied. I see. It’s been a long time since I came to the roof last. After all, we didn’t come to the roof often though we liked it. Have you climbed here? Don’t you remember the day
when we came to this apartment to check in advance? I remember it… Did we climbed then? We did.
There we decided to settle this apartment. Is that so? We quarreled at that time…
about the furniture or something. Then we climbed there and talked about many things. In those days, I was gnawed by anxiety. I was always frustrated that I couldn’t express my feeling. Sorry for not saying, I was thinking of breaking up with you… because of relieving my anxiety, even a little bit. Then you suddenly hugged me tight… and said like a melodrama “Don’t worry, follow me.”
Besides, you kissed me in sunset… so I decided to live here with you. You don’t remember of such a dramatic day?
Are you silly? Now I remember. I’ll be going now. I keep a boyfriend waiting in his car. You should go soon. Bye. Take care. You will win? You will lose? I will win… for sure. Stars: Daiki Miyagi and Ririka Hoshino A film by Naoki Ichio
