A light romance that's unconventional and done just right
26 November 2009 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Oto-na-ri is a somewhat unconventional romantic movie starring a JE actor who can actually act. Why the movie is unconventional, you actually need to watch it because I don't want to ruin the movie for you. For me, the color was a little dark, but that probably has to do with the whole sound-without-sight idea (again, if you're just reading this it might be confusing - the movie is about two neighbors who don't meet; they follow each other's life through the sounds in the other apartment). Simple (definitely not mind-blowing by any measure), artistic, with good acting (though Okada is my favorite actor, I was more impressed by Aso's acting in this particular instance), I would re-watch Oto-na-ri again and again. It's very heart-warming, cute, yet not a conventional chick-flick. Not groundbreaking, but definitely not without merit. Recommended.
