Storyline

Upon reaching the train station to death, a dejected soul is informed that he is 'lucky' and will have another chance at life. He is placed in the body of a 14-year-old boy named Makoto Kobayashi, who has just committed suicide. Watched over by a neutral spirit named Purapura, the soul must figure out what his greatest sin and mistake in his former life was before his time limit in Makoto's body runs out. He also has a number of other lesser duties he must complete, such as understanding what led Makoto to commit suicide in the first place and learning how to enjoy his second chance at life.

Beware the anime, you can't get the right film!
14 May 2006 | by (Boston, USA) – See all my reviews

Apparently there were 2 Japanese films of the title "Colorful". Everyone tells the synopsis of the excellent heaven-can-wait live-action fantasy that was released in 2000. It's about a boy's spirit who killed himself. He returns in another boy's body for redemption. This was shown at some festivals. It was family friendly and got good reviews. But then stores sell/rent you a stupid anime of men drooling over women's panties. Believe me I've tried. The bad one is anime from ADV films. It was released in 2005, on DVD-only release, with 16 episodes of bad sex jokes. If someone can get the correct non-anime Colorful, please let me know!
