I simply love this movie!
4 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the most wonderful movies that I have watched in a long time.

I guess the last ever comparable movie was "Forrest Gump". Indeed, I personally think that this is a great accomplishment for an Asian movie. Matsuda Ryuhei is simply cool and natural in his role. As for Hirosue Ryoko, the last I have seen her was in the 1997 series "Beach Boys". Think she has matured a lot as an actress. And looks fabulous on the movie. Maybe it's time that I stop procrastinating and start picking up Japanese. Overall, this show is fantastic. I am going to recommend to people that I know. Could stop watching even when my exam is ard the corner. Final word "FABULOUS"!
