    • Synopsis
    • "Looking for Anne" presents an entirely
      original story inspired by the book "Anne
      of Green Gables" of the Canadian writer,
      Lucy Maud Montgomery. It tells how this
      single book, and the friendships that
      build around it, can change the life of
      people beyond time and space...
      A seventeen years old, Anri, comes to
      Prince Edward Island for three weeks.
      Your typical shy Japanese girl, Anri gave
      herself a secret mission: she wants to
      find an old Canadian war veteran, with
      only a single clue, or just about: he sup-
      posedly lives near a lighthouse. Riding
      her bicycle every day, she gradually un-
      covers some small clues concerning the mysterious soldier: he was the
      first love of her recently deceased grandmother, and the man who gave
      her the book "Anne of Green Gables".
      Faced with her own first love, the young and handsome islander Ryan,
      Anri struggles to find the meaning of "true love". And quite a few people
      will come to help her in her quest. First, Mari, the beautiful B&B owner in
      her late fifties will act as a confident, a rose specialist and a "victim of
      love". Then, Mari's neighbor, Jeff, a strange retired philosophy professor
      who loves women and the bass clarinet, will come to create a certain
      confusion in Anri's mind... And last, two Japanese sisters, Miyuki and
      Mika, customers at the B&B will stir up some more bewilderment in the
      young woman's mind.
      Missing her apparent last chance to find the soldier, Anri's mission seems
      to be a failure. But she might have found a taste of the essence of life
      and love on the way... And a miracle could always still happen...
