    Where can I begin with this movie. I loved it! The story was so beautiful and tragic, I was crying into my blanket about half the time! I'm not sure how to review this movie without giving away spoilers so I'll just say that it is a must see!

    Kazuya Kamenashi as Yuuki is amazing. One of his best acting roles I think I've ever watched him in. He is such and optimistic character, and thinks of others before himself even though he is very ill.

    If you don't cry at least one single tear before this movie is over, then you have no soul. It's a really, really great movie!

  • Scent of a woman it's more romantic,and Yuuki doesn't have romance at al, but both of them will make you cry if you have a hearth.personaly i liked Yuuki more(maybe because of Kam-kun)because I was in the mood of watching something serious and deep.The first one won't make you laugh and both of them will make you think of how lucky you are to be healthy. They are both great dramas which are a must watch.

  • They are both specials of true stories about people getting diseases that can't easily be cured. Throughout both the characters remain optimistic and willful to live until the very end with the help of their family and friends along the way.
