Great movie for a straight guy, 8 July 2008
Author: keal from USA

I'm a straight guy who co-exists with a lot of gay friends, co-workers, and an ex-gf who's now happy with another woman. Anytime something like Love My Life comes along that helps reinforce my belief that 'love is all there is' I'm all for it and will highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

To be redundant, I highly recommend this film to whoever's reading. What makes this an especially great movie is that while the characters are gay - a touchy subject for many - it's a realistic story told in a smooth, comfortable, safe and palatable way that makes it easy to start watching, and there's nothing particularly shocking throughout. Artfully (aka tastefully) done and probably the best manga-to-film translation besides Nana (unrelated movie but recommended also). Love My Life is a very good primer for people who might be a little 'homophobic' or who don't have much experience with gay people in their daily lives and were curious to see how a gay person's normal routine compares to that of a straight person.

A nice love story no matter how you slice it!
