Cast & Credits
This movie, was beautiful, it brought me to tears. It's a bittersweet love story about a girl, in 2008, who drops her cell phone during an earthquake, and a boy from 1912 finds it. They are able to talk on the phone, and start to have feelings for each other.
There was this one scene in particular, that really moved me, and not to give away any spoilers, i will call it "the gift from Erizen and the old lady/little girl scene" when you watch the movie, you will understand. It was beautiful, and very touching. I've re-watched that scene a few times, and it still makes me tear up...
I'm going to end my review by saying that you should definitely watch this movie, you will not regret it.
Maybe some scenes, the scriptwriter had could bring them more out and made them more touching. Also the topics which were mentioned are weak, not all of them but most of them. I wished and hoped more for the whole movie.
The actors played okay, but there could be more and better emotion. The music caused the most of the atmosphere and I really liked it. Without the music this film would be not that accetable.
This film is nice for everyone who want to watch a light film, which is not to complicated. Even it is a light film, for sensitive people I would recommend handkerchiefs. So my review maybe seem as I don't like the film, but I really do. I will not rewatch it, but this film will be somewhere in my mind.
