Before watching this movie prepare yourself emotionally to be torn apart.

They say that after a really good show, you can't say that it was a success if the audience bursts into applause, but if they remain silent even for a few seconds after it's done. This IS the kind of movie that after you're done watching you'll find yourself gazing at the closing credits, reflecting on what you just saw.

Usually read more when I want to watch a movie I don't read the description, nor do I watch any trailer. I just search up the poster, read some opinions and then I'm good to go. Therefore, I had no idea what to expect of this movie, since I didn't know the story at all, and I'm kind of glad I did. It was much more enjoyable.

I think the cast was well chosen. Kora Kengo and Horikita Maki were perfect for their roles. I was surprised to see Horikita Maki play such a serious role (as I was being used with her only playing roles like Ashiya Mizuki in 'Hana Kimi'), but it suited her.

Overall, "Into the white night" reminded me of "Confessions", another one of my favourite movies. What they have in common is not the story, but the way they were directed; it was beautifully shot, in my opinion, and they captured the scenes perfectly, thus managing to convey the right emotions.

There are a few movies that can actually make my jaw drop every five minutes of it. Well, this one is one of them.

The first things that attracted me and made me watch this film are the poster which suits a good romance film (more than a mixture of romance and crime) and the name! I thought the movie was going to be more romantic and less crime, but trust me, read more this is worth watching!

Like I said, I kept my jaw dropped throughout the whole film because it was marvelous! I really enjoyed when and how the events took place and the acting was amazing!

At the end, I would like to tell all of you who still didn't watch the film to be emotionally prepared for a big breakdown at the end. I'm not going to spoiler, but keep tissues near, you'll need them!

It's the same story. Advice : watch the movie first. The drama would spoil all the movie suspense, but the movie won't spoil the drama's.

    I suggest everyone to watch the drama version instead of wasting your time with this movie, I don't understand the reviews rating this movie with a 10, because this definitely wasn't a 10, more like a 6 or lower. If I hadn't watched the drama version before watching this, I would've never understood what was going on, also there was a lack of emotion and basically no interaction between the leads.
    So yeah do yourself a favour and watch the Drama Byakuyako 2006 if you want to watch something good because the story is totally worth it.

    So good. Long, and a little too slow at times but still so good.
