If tomorrow comes...
2 July 2009 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

A movie I recently saw is "HANAYOME", in Japanese it's called "Yomei ikkagetsu no hanayome". This is a movie about woman who is suffering from a breast cancer and man who is her boyfriend (later, her husband). This is based on true story... They meet on business for first time and they fall in love each other, but she gets sick, breast cancer... In this film, Nana Eikura acts a woman, Chie, and Eita who also appears in mobile phone's commercial now acts a man, Tarou. When I saw this, I had wept for last thirty minutes and most of the audience, too. I was moved by her words, behavior which was so positive and encouraged man, family, friends although she vaguely knew her remaining days (but everyone didn't say her it, only one month.)The most impressed words are "Tomorrow is a miracle." We would think we don't want to die when we die, but we feel it's natural to live now because we usually don't think nor know when we die, so I think every day is so precious. In this film, she tells us that we should have doctor see soon if we notice something unusual on our body. If she had been to hospital earlier, she could live now. Breast cancer is not for only older woman. She was in only her early 20's. I could learn many things from this film, so I can't find something bad. I usually like science fiction movie and go movie for it, but this movie is worthwhile to see. This is drama, based on true story, it's easy to see. The song "Ashita ga kurunara (JUJU with JAYDE)" whose meaning is "If tomorrow comes" in English is also impressive and has something powerful to tell our hearts. Through my all review, I recommend this movie.
