The two first met when Makoto attended his University Entrance Ceremony. Due to his Inferiority Complex, Makoto tends to shy away other people but Shizuru managed to Make him open up to her. Because of their friendship, Shizuru also ended up taking interest in photography and the two often went to the forest to take pictures. Shizuru wants nothing else but to be by Makoto's side so when he started liking another girl called Miyuki , Shizuru decided that she too will like Miyuki and becomes her friend . One day , Makoto asked Shizuru what present she'd like to receive for her Birthday.

A lot of heart into each captured moment.

Heavenly Forest is by far the sweetest love movie I have seen in a long time. I'm a movie buff especially in this genre.

Every moment has it's nostalgic feeling into it, the transition from one phase to the other blends well and never did lose it's hype.

Although, the movie doesn't draw tension as much as compared with other Romance movies but it is meant to be in that way so it portrays meaningful happiness instead of sob tearjerker that drives the audience downhill.

Although this movie has strong influence on Japanese cultures (dialects, humbleness etc.) but that's what keeps it at it's sweet and delicate momentum.

There is nothing lacking in this movie, as it is sweet in every sensible way it displays.

This is the kind of movie that Hollywood could never provide.

Modestly Warm and Delicatively Meaningful.
