This is the movie which has changed how I look at life.
30 April 2008 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

This is a movie for people who takes life for granted. In our pursuit of happiness, we forget simple things in life. This movie will remind us that what makes life worth living is our simple tasks and activities in our daily living. We don't have to grasp our widest dream to enjoy our life. After I have watched this movie, I go to gym every day just to enjoy running and weight lifting, knowing that one day I would be old and that my age would prevent me from doing things I am capable of doing now. Just like Aya, she soon lost her abilities to do things she used to do. The different is that time comes quick on her. But surely, her life reflects our life that we are getting older everyday. This is the movie which has changed the way I look at life.
