This highly commercial romantic drama is aimed at the Japanese teen market and is packed with product plugs and tie-ins for items ranging from automobiles and fashions to ski equipment and resorts. The story concerns the burgeoning romance on the slopes between a young, cute, and very shy champion skier and an attractive girl. Back in Tokyo, he is just too busy promoting ski clothing for his employer to see anyone socially, and it seems that their relationship will end. Soon, however, they team up to ensure that he appears at a crucial fashion show back on the slopes, despite sabotage attempts by a rival company. Reportedly, every one of the leads is extremely cute and endearing, and the skiing footage is quite watchable. Since the fashions, cars and equipment being touted in it are now well-past their sell-by dates, this light movie's ephemeral themes might be of special interest to ski and fashion history buffs.
