A Great Movie
29 November 2003 | by flatronSee all my reviews

The dead were here because they wanted to let the alive know the meaning of their lives. When they went away, everyone found themselves a new way to live on. Yomigaeri just shows these all.

The child lost in the wood, the wife died from pregnancy, the school student who suicided himself......those we missed so much suddenly came in reality. They dug out the emotion that we didn't pay attention to or were ashamed to express, and the feeling was so precious now.

The flame of love between the leading actor and actress finally appeared. If they didn't experience this event, they probably lost each other. Love is of great power, especially in front of death. Although the time to be with each other was short and farewell was at hand, it was enough.
