both include stories about starcrossed lovers. In the beginning we find out one of characters died and then go on a trip down memory lane. In Love Letter it's more of a side story while in Rainbow Song it's the main focus. Shunji Iwai was involved in the making of both films.

    Juri Ueno is the only good thing that happened in this film. Still, worth a watch.

    after watching this, the summary here seems ... wrong. There's a more accurate summary on wiki "Tomoya Kishida (Hayato Ichihara) is working as a staffer in a television studio when he hears about the death of his close friend, Aoi Sato (Juri Ueno). This sparks his recollection of the events in life they shared from meeting at a record store, shooting a short film as part of their university film club, to saying their last goodbyes. Though in love with each other, neither had the courage to confess their feelings before it was too late."

    I think I expected too much from this movie. I didn't feel the feelings that the actors were supposed to give me. The tragic part would have been a lot more tragic if the actors had shown that they were sad but they didn't show it until at the end of the movie.

    In the description they said that he can't stop daydreaming about her and that they were in love but he didn't even show a sign of love for her until the end of the movie. I'm not even sure if he was sad because he was he in love with her or if he was sad because she loved him.

    Depending on your tastes, this may not be all that "tragic". It may not be anything special. But it connects the story nicely, sort of. This is my first Japanese live-action movie, so I can't say a lot about the acting - but I thought the male lead was adorable :) Rainbow Song is a sweet little movie, in the end, so I did enjoy the experience.
