Storyline

'Sleeping Bride' is a story of a young girl who ever since her birth, has never been a wake. Seven years after birth, a little boy called Yuuchi encounters the girl while he's exploring the hospital he's in. After a nurse remarking to him that the girl, Yumi, is a 'sleeping beauty', Yuuchi believes that just like in the story, if Yumi is kissed by a prince, she'll wake up. So, everyday he goes to Yumi's room and remarks: "Please wake up! I'm a prince!" This becomes routine for him. Then, after ten years, he goes back, says the words and... Yumi wakes up!

Boy falls in love with sleeping girl, girl wakes up...
16 March 2005 | by MegatonShotblastSee all my reviews

I got this film in the Ring trilogy box set and according to the write up it was going to be a horror version of Sleeping Beauty and was similar in style to Ring.

Its pretty much wrong on both accounts. Although the story is based on the Sleeping Beauty story I fail to see where they got the horror element from.

It does have a similar look to the Ring but thats only cause its made by the same guy. But if your going in expecting a horror film then your gong to be a bit disappointed. Then again having said that I was expecting a horror and I came out enjoying it even more then I thought I was going to. Call me a sentimental old fool but when a love story is done well I really love a good love film.

I'm sorry my review isn't so good but I couldn't let there be only one review especially one saying it sucked.
