i agree with the previous comment. i have not seen anything so sad for a long time. i'm not a guy who is really into Japanese drama/movie. but this show really changed my mind. i have to take back my words for my serious doubt about the acting. the movie carries a heart-warming message about appreciating every moments of our lives. Aya's only wish was "to live." By carefully depicting Aya's earnest desire to live, and the love of her family, friends, and lover. The drama, wishes to deliver her simple but strong message: "Just being alive is such a lovely and wonderful thing."
everyone, especially Erika Sawajiri and her family's acting was superb. i have to admit i cried a lot of times during the show. absolutely a touching Japanese drama series that should not be missed by anyone.
go watch it!
