Definitely not your typical romance-fantasy. I'm glad still give this movie a try despite the rating is so low.
You need special perspective to understand this movie. Well it's not that hard to follow the story tho. But if you already feel uncomfortable with the setting heaven-earth love story then you will never find the enjoyment and how good this movie is. This movie rich with stories, there are some theatrical scene but it's okay just follow it.

This movie using narration method, and it's Chasuke himself. He tells his own story and feeling. The narration portion is good enough, not too much, only when this movie need to pin point each character, so it's easy to follow the whole story. I like how this movie explain each character clearly.

Since those character were made by the screenwriter in the heaven, they're unique and different. Chasuke himself sometimes feel annoyed when he found a human with unlucky and tragic destiny (he knows some of those people history and the writer who write them). Luckily, Chasuke has a super power that can control movement, mind control and healing power, because basically he's not human. WIth this power, he try to heal sick people. Then people called him as an angel, and oh that wing! Chasuke accidentally took it somewhere and just keep wear it whenever & wherever. Yes that wing in the poster is a fake wing not a CG nor Chasuke in angel form, lol.

While he lives in earth, he involved in fighting with Yakuza, from there he found his own background and his real identity in the earth. This part is really interesting and unpredictable. So the whole story is not only about his love story. I think the love story in this movie is only basic story to reveal other stories.

Even though this movie classified as fantasy genre, it doesn't using unnecessary CG effects, there is some but not that bold, it's just simple and nice. It's pure drama.

In the end, I believe that this movie wants to tell that we can change our destiny with strong will, keep praying and never give up, well something like that. :D

PS:
I like the soundtrack, if you do but you don't know who and what the tittle is, then I'll give you the answer.
It's called "?/Tsubasa/Wing" by Ms MOOJA.
When I check it out, it turns out that the whole album has the same nice feeling with this soundtrack. I feel lucky to find such good songs. :D
