'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!

A cute film to watch with your friends...
1 June 2005 | by smiling_guySee all my reviews

Okay, so if you're having a nice day and you don't want to watch a horror movie with your friends and you want your girlfriend to be putty in your hands, then rent this and show it to her.

I was lucky enough to get this from Japan before it came out in the UK with the box set. When I watched it, I really wanted to see it for it's Rikiya Otaka at the start. He played his part great in the movie as younger Yuuchi. He was cool the way he played it.

I think you should watch it if you want a sappy and good hearted romance with cute little kiddies in it and high young girl. One for the ladies, and one for us lads if we've got her on a date! Really cool, bye!
