perfect movie for me!
1 April 2013 | by fluffsetSee all my reviews

I never watch the Japanese one, some of the viewer who watch the Japanese one will think something else after watch this. Just like when you watch fincher's dragon tattoo after the Swedish one, which one is better? So, I'm hardly rate ten star because no such perfect movie in this world, this movie either. But, something all moviegoers need is the movie that have some kind of spirit, which it can hold you to stay on your seat till the end of credit. Make your mind think like this is not right? What's going on? What will happen next? Should sequeling this! A love movie that doesn't need ''I love you'' quote.

What I don't like about this movie is,they should make it more longer,because we love to see what will happen to the character's life. I'm so sad, a good romance-detective-mystery movie. Highly recommended!!
