Since I love skiing and I love romantic comedy movies, this movie hit all the right buttons for me. (I also loved Wimbledon(2004 for similar reasons). And come to think of it, maybe that is the best way to describe 銀色のシーズン. This is part of the latest string of Japanese "hollywood blockbuster-like" movies; mostly the work of this director- Eiichiro Hasumi (Limit of love-Umizaru, Umizaru) but also Takashi Yamazaki(Always San Chome no yuhi, Returner). This movie is a wonderful mix of Hollywood "blockbuster" elements, elements of the British Romantic Comedy genre, but also adding lots of uniquely Japanese twists too. The basic story is well setup, the camera work is brilliant, the Japanese alps are beautifully captured along with actors, and all the actors do a very good job(given the genre). And the "snow chapel" idea is brilliant and just so romantic. This really is a sweet film with some very lovable characters and beautiful shots. This really is a well done romantic comedy and ski movie and one of my favourites now.
