A beautifully bittersweet experience.
10 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Wasurenai to Chikatta Boku ga Ita, or (Forget me not) is a must watch for Romance/drama fans, though be ready for a bittersweet experience.

Story - 4/5

(I'll assume you've read the bio, as that more than adequately sums up the plot)

Whilst simple, it does everything it needs to. Not much is explained about how Azusa got her condition, but to say the movie suffers without it would be harsh considering the overall experience was enjoyable.

However be warned, without spoiling it, the ending may not be perfect for some. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, but I can see others not having the same opinion.

Direction/Soundtrack - 5/5

I was pleasantly surprised by the look and sound, as I was fully engrossed in the nostalgic feel this movie gives off. Nearly every shot is beautiful, and it perfectly expresses everything you need to know. The subtlety of the piano based score also adds to a wonderful experience, and emphasises the emotions this film brings.

Acting - 5/5

Without being too over the top, I found both actors possessing all the characteristics and emotions needed to be likable. Akari Hayami, as Azusa, felt lonely and wary of her "problem", yet became much more than that as the story progresses.

The stand-out performance for me however was Nijirô Murakami, as Takashi. He was perfect in his role, feeling like a real person rather than an actor on screen. He dealt with all the highs and lows of the film with conviction, yet he never performed over the top. I felt I was suffering with him, which could be said for both actors.

The side characters whilst enjoyable, are rather forgetful however.

To summarise then. It covers all the emotions, and the actors who convey these feeling felt believable and likable. It is also directed well, with a emotional score. However, the lack of explanation to the plot, and your outlook on the ending may be enough to ruin it for some.

Overall however I found it to be one of my all time favourite Romance/Dramas, one I would recommend highly.
