Storyline

Amamiya Shuuhei moves from Tokyo to the country side due to his grandmother's bad health. His father is a famous pianist and Shuuhei has taken strict piano lessons since he was very young, aspiring to follow in his footsteps. In school, he is teased by his classmates and is dared to play the piano in the forest. This piano is said to be cursed: if you play it, no sound will come. After school, Ichinose Kai, a boy in the same class, takes Shuuhei to the forest. When Shuuhei tries to play he fails, but Kai plays a wonderful song. This is the beginning of a strong friendship, and a story of two very different boys developing their skills as musicians. Written by Anonymous

absolutely beautiful movie!
4 January 2009 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

awesome! this is a very beautiful story about two boys who love piano very much! even if they have many differences, they can be good friends because of their love to piano. this movie will fascinate you with its very good plot and beautiful classic songs from Beethoven, Chopin, and Mozart. you'll laugh and say 'wow!' in the same time! I really recommend this movie to everyone! even if you don't like piano, or you're a pianist, you must see this wonderful movie! I'm sure this is not a type of a bad anime movie that waste your time! there are so many bad movies now, don't watch them! just watch this beautiful movie and I'm sure you won't disappoint!
