Doctor, why can't I stop crying? Since I was a child. I haven't cried a single tear. I don't know how to stop it now... If you're a doctor, please tell me. What can I do to stop it?
That's easy. If you cry a lot, it will stop.

Actually I was tempted to stand up and leave the theater at the beginning part of the film because there were flooding scenes of childish and idiotic acting and dialogue yet I had a second thought about it. Well I found I was right about my hunch at the end credit. It was one of the best fantastic comedies with a little spice of tragedy.
I got involved with the story and went through catharsis because I identified with one of the characters who shared my problem and got it over with. There were various kinds of people in the film and you should find the one whom you can identify yourself with, I guess.
Koji Yakusho's performance was overwhelming. He was really good at expressing his emotion through his eyes not through line of dialogue, which reminded me of his mentor Tatsuya Nakadai in "The Shadow Warrior(1980)". Ayaka Wilson was as lovely as Ivana Baquero in "Pan's Labyrinth (2007)". Jun Kunimura well-known for his low-keyed performance played a cameo role as a hard gay.
I wish there were a little more explanation why that cold-hearted shitty old man began to care about the fairy whatever her fate was; it is my personal opinion, though. Everyone in the theater was giggling, running nose like me ;-) and applauding. Oh, if you ever had a chance to see this film, make sure you got your handkerchief, OK?
