So I just read Lian95's review and I realized she(he?) was right, how come no one had written a review of such a good movie? This movie has everything, the right amount of drama, romance, friendship and comedy all blended together to make an awesome movie, a must see. This one of my favorite movies, I've watched it many times.

The story is great, you really have no way read more of imagining what's gonna happen next, but I won't anything more about it because otherwise I'd spoil it for those who haven't watched it yet.

The acting really blows my mind, I've always loved Tamaki, ever since I saw Nodame Cantabile, and he always plays his part perfectly wether it be here, in Nodame, in Love Shuffle or any of his other dramas and movies. The female lead, whose name I can't remember right now, also plays her part perfectly, her more than anybody because her role was really hard to play. I hate her in real life because she's one of Japan's biggest divas, in the BAD sense of the word, and that's why admire her even more in this movie-because I love her character.

The music always goes according to the scene, it makes you feel what the characters are feeling.

I've watched this movie several times with different people, and every time I watch it again I discover something new.

Overall this is one of the greatest japanese movies that I've ever seen because unlike must jap movies this one actually makes me feel something, this one gets to the heart instead of being overvdepressing, I recommend it for anyone who likes memorable love stories.

Both movies have so many 'what ifs' and lost chances. It may ended up sad but it's really beautiful, heartwarming, and inspiring.

They're both based on school/college students and give off a warm vibe. Not to mention the similarity in terms of heartbreak and disease.

    Baseado no romance Renai Shashin: Mou hitotsu no Monogatari, escrito por Takuji Ichikawa
    Definição perfeita: Não julgue pela aparência e dê valor aquela pessoa que realmente te ama!. O tema é muito bem abordo por isto entra para lista.

    Cried towards the end of the movie I knew it was going to be heartbreaking, but still ended up being not prepared enough. Lol! There were some stuff worth nitpicking, but overall, it was an good film.
