User Reviews

it's simple but it's wonderful
8 September 2011 | by goedgoodSee all my reviews

It is a very simple story but it's funny to watch and after the movie finished I didn't feel like leaving the theater. I sat there, speechless but felt satisfied. Some people sat around me couldn't stop crying but many of us left the theater with smile on our faces.

It is a very simple story but it reminds us of something that was once special and important in our life. We laughed through out the movie and our emotion was triggered by a very simple but very hearty story.

"You are the apple of my eye" what a wonderful phrase! Those years, what we did could be non-sense but it was so important and we saw only those things in those years. We grow and we change and so do the characters in the movie.

The director did a great job to tell the story and the actors/actresses did great job as well. Camera work's fine and music/original scores are great too. It's a great combination of works and it's touching! I encourage/recommend you to see this delightful movie and to find something once was important back in life. Feel young again and feel reckless again~ 10 out of 10! Don't miss it!
