Kosaku Ito (Toma Ikuta) teaches world history at a high school. He looks inflexible, but, in fact, he has a warm heart. Hibiki Shimada (Suzu Hirose) is a student and she has a crush on Kosaku. She has never had a boyfriend before. Due to being young and naive, she is honest to Kosaku about her feelings. Kosaku though is unable to express his feelings freely due to his position as a teacher.
Honesty, I had a crush on my teacher way back during my college years, but of course, it was a one-sided feeling and it never crosses my mind to express it.
My Teacher‘s storyline showed some issues related to the student-teacher relationship. All the matters of the aftermath were realistically presented and gave the complete sense picture of the topic.
Though the story seems nothing more than ordinary and some scenes are pretty slow, I still appreciate the warmth, the gentle execution of the characters that made this film not to be cliché and offensive.
