good for the first half... the rest kind draggy...
19 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

the first half was great.

after naomi and hiroske gets in argueing, it starts to drag down to nowhere, sort of lose the pace, then turns out to be a ridiculous melo drama... i cant really go into details cuz it can ruin it when u watch this flick. also, before i watched this film i heard that this has some surprising end, but i didnt find it so surprising. the movie starts out really great, also it has a lot of points about the marriage and all that family relationship stuffs. this movie would have looked better if it was shorten into about 90mins or around there.
