Acting: Touching upon this subject I'd say that that was generally great movie. In all aspects actors were excellent. But I guess you would all like to know what exactly am i talking about, so - here is the story: Actors: Takeshi Kaneshiro - sometimes I feel really silly, because I always say something good about his acting...and I would really like to be objective in his case. None the less, when talking about that movie in particular – Takeshi Kaneshiro is great. Sometimes you get to hate him, sometimes you totally loose temper ‘cause he is running away from the main heroine but he loves her and needs her badly... and still you catch your thoughts on the fact that you do not percept him as an actor – only as a character. And in this case – would not that be the real evidence of his acting talent? Fukada Kyoko - even though I got used to think simply of the actresses who are pretty I would say that she is wonderful. I guess this movie is more to attract the viewer’s attention to her and her character rather than to everyone else. If not her, the story would have been simply problematic – but you would have no such great emotions. And the emotions are on the top while watching. Kato Haruhiko - I would only say that after watch you will smile recalling him. And this smile would mean you like the guy…though not sure whether it was a character he played of the actor himself. Tanaka Yoshiko - who can be more important than mother. Actually sometimes you just watch the movie to understand that that is the perfect image of mother. And the more she tries her best – the more you realize how much pain does it cost.
What was good in the movie?:
Sometimes in order to realize that life is full of wonders you have to get experience. But sometimes that is enough to read something or to watch something to understand that once you do something bad – there is no turning back. And you can only live a life that would make it out if you dare to. Even though this dorama is very sad, you get this bright message.
What was bad in the movie?:
That should be said and written on every spoiler to the dorama!!! This movie makes you feel depressed and if you are too emotional, please watch it together with someone else. Surely, I am just joking right now, but this movie really made me personally cry a lot. That is not bad if you are alright with that type of action.
