Kuchibiru ni Uta o (2015)

Kuchibiru ni Uta o is a 2015 live-action Japanese movie directed by Takahiro Miki and based on a novel by Eiichi Nakata.

The movie was by Angela Aki's hit 2008 song “Tegami ~Haikei Juugo no Kimi e~", which was the chosen set song for NHK's N-Con school choir competition that year. After watching the televised documentary featuring middle schoolers from around the country, Otsuichi wrote a story themed around the competition.
