Good Enough
4 November 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

What I liked about "You shine in the moonlight" was the couple. The actors had chemistry and they did a perfect job when it came to acting, especially during the most dramatic scenes. They were, overall, convincing and emotional and kept the interest high till the very ending.

However, the movie didn't handle the story very well. Sure, the main plot about two young students falling in love even though one of them is deadly sick, is common, especially in the japanese repertoir. This movie had the strange illness to demonstrate and use as their tool to seperate themselves from the others out their. However, they did not used it at all. They showed some scenes here and there, but didn't elaborate on it. Also, the emotional scenes were a bit blunt.

In the end, the movie is quite forgetable, so five out of ten.
