When they wake up, however, they both are sweating. Hana's just better at it - at least at first.
The two meet up at what appears to be a swanky coffeeshop. As usual, Kine is the odd man out here, hair and clothing unkempt. Conversely, Hana looks the part, stylish, not a hair out of place in her outfit. Once again, the two look curious. After Kine vents out a bit, Hana has a plan: the magazine works for has a need for some part-timers. This way, they'll get to see each other, and make plans for the future. It seems like a good plan.
However, Hana's perfect plans slowly, slowly start to unravel. It starts with an offhand remark, "I just can't be by myself". Standing alone, you might not discern the comment. But notice the opening scene. Hana is not walking on the sidewalk, where the snow has been plowed, a sensible path. Rather, she mounts the small mountains of snow - but not with confidence, rather with abandon. Kine, on the other hand, walks sensibly. He has gone through some rough times, and has lived through scars, but muddles through.
I think that you well know by now that I really don't care for giving away all of the secrets, so you'll understand if I don't. However, I will get through some of the technical work. Ms. Yamashita happily avoids the busywork on the cover, preferring rather a spare Hana, with warts on parade. Another scene where Yamashita does her best work is the scene of the angry ocean. Hana says in these scenes "My mind and body..." but rather should be saying "My mind or body..."
And the seas roar.
