Heartwarming and sincere.
24 January 2007 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

This was a brilliant movie. I watched it on the plane from Japan to Holland and even on the plane I found myself crying towards the end.

Watanabe acts superbly and so does Higuchi.

After watching the film, I came away reminded of how important it is to show your loved ones you care.

A lot of movies about sickness can present very 2-dimensional characters but the characters in this movie had a lot of depth and it was easy to relate to them and ask "what would I do in that situation?".

Eight out of ten.
