pure feeling of the little boy
30 September 2013 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

The little boy who is an elementary school student falls in love with his teacher and he proposes to her, but she has a fiancé. Then, the little boy started revenge when he sees hers fiancé. This film is depicts pure feeling of the little boy and heart warming story. I think the little boy is very brave and very cute. So, I like this film. The little boy's bravery and the fiancé's weakness were contrasted greatly. If a favorite person has a fiancé, I think almost all people will give up, but this boy has conveyed his feeling to the teacher, without giving up. We can remember the pure feeling which we are forgetting by seeing this film.
