It took me to a very cozy part of my heart
28 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

The photography is specially good. The actors are making a very good atmosphere in a relationship that seems to be a love story.

Also is very interesting for someone who does not know japan, because its take place in a very nice part of Japan (Hokkaido) but at the same time is very real Japan countryside. In this film we also see a part of Japan that not other films had showed yet.the character of the actor is very is very Japanese buy it also has something that every men in the world have. The girl is just fantastic the way she performs, is all in her expressions she transmit the meaning of the film.

I really like the title of the film. Sora no Ana. Hole in the Sky. How ever thought about the sun as a hole in the sky

ENJOY IT TOO
