Beautiful indeed.
20 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

I happened upon it by surprise while watching TV a few days ago. When it was over, I looked up the next showing time and set my VCR to tape it. And I don't waste tape on trash. I've been in love with Japanese culture for years and am all about anime and manga. But I'm not limited to either so I was happy to sit and watch this cute love story set in Japan. Plus it was an 80s movie and I usually like those. I was so drawn into the story and the characters...I just couldn't get enough of "Robert-san"! He was so cute in his initial ignorance of the customs! I didn't want it to end. Didn't help that the end theme's lyrics were "It's over!".
