Hopefully this will be released in the U.S.
3 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film at the AFI Film Festival and it hits you on a deep emotional level. I am lucky that I have not had anyone in my family suffering from Alzheimer's, but the film works because it is also contains universal issues about lost love, honor and unspoken feelings within a family. I pretty much cried through the last half of the movie. Ken Watanabe was there after the screening for Q&A. He secured the rights to the book himself, then found the writer and director. His executive producer credit is well earned, and Watanabe just further cements proof of his great acting talents. What could have been a made-for-TV movie in the U.S. is a poignant story for the big screen with a superb level of execution.
