good for the first half... the rest kind draggy..., 19 May 2003
Author: sieZe

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.
