There are some fine moments in this nicely photographed Japanese movie about a young girl with AIDS who faces discrimination from the residents of her hometown. But the story is predictable and derivative -- we've seen it all before. The only thing different here is the locale, and even that isn't exploited enough to make this film stand out. And, although the film maker's heart is in the right place, it verges on a preachiness that is a bit heavy-handed.
