"...for being born"
11 April 2006 | by (Canada, toronto) – See all my reviews

It was so deeply intense... so dramatic.. and wonderful yet depressing.

Although there are some nudity, not surprised from the title itself, "Platonic Sex", then again, the title means non-intimidating sex/relationship... basically if I were to give an example, prostitution would be a good one, because you're having sex with someone that you aren't very close to....

It was so sad and beautiful... and.. *sniff..* I want to watch it again.. ;o;!! the music is AWESOME!! I need to find the CD "From Silence - Not At All"... it's so beautiful.. ;o;!! I recommend this for the maturity audience.. it doesn't really matter if you're underage.. just as long you're mature and willingly to accept the ideas and ways of the mundane life in Japan... It has romance in it...

The main summary of this story is about a girl named Aoi. It was her 17th birthday, she had a cake, and had a lot of fun with her friends... She was ganged raped by her classmates/friends. Her life was about to end with one step from a 5-story building of her high school when all of the sudden, her cellphone rang, and it was a text messaged saying, "Dear Ai, Happy Birthday." "Isn't it cold there? - Toshi" Aoi assumes the sender had the wrong address, but she replied anyway: "I became 17 years old today." "There's a birthday cake, and everybody's here." "It's quite warm here." ------- Just before Aoi's message got into Toshi's cellphone, he was about to commit a serious crime to murder 4 people, although the reason is not stated.. (You will understand later on in the movie). Toshi stopped and dropped the pocket knife and read the text message. With the replied of: "Dear Ai, Thanks for answering my message." "Knowing that you're alive... this alone makes me happy." "Thank you for being born.

-Toshi" The movie illustrated powerful and significant messages to the audience. It made me cried twice, and I'm not the type to cry o_o;...

Anyway, hope you would like something with romance and drama...

many conflict in the plot and good climax!
