Kaoru dreamily gazes from her bedroom window each morning just before dawn. She can see a stretch of the beach in front of her parent's house on a hill in Kamakura, but focuses upon the activity at the bus stop where Koji and his two best friends meet before going surfing. The appearance of the sun causes her to lowers the blinds and go to sleep for she suffers from Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP) and exposure to the sun's rays has had the potential to kill her. At night she walks to the train station, plays her guitar and sings songs she has written, commonly returning home just a few minutes before it starts getting light. One morning she is at the bus stop singing when Koji arrives...

I wish I could complain about this movie. Ok wait, i don't. This movie was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!



Story: 10/10 The story is one that will motivate you while tears stream down your eyes. It has themes of "High School" romance mixed in with following your dreams to the very end.



Cast/Acting 10/10 I couldn't ask for a better cast. They truly did a flawless job.



Music: 10/10 I still listen to the theme song by Yui (who also acted in this movie) two weeks after I watched the movie. The only "downside" about this movie is that you get addicted to the wonderful music by Yui.



Rewatch Value: 9/10 This is such a beautiful movie that I would definitely rewatch.



Overall 10/10 (i'd give it a 15/10 if I could!). Definitely watch this movie. You won't regret it.

Another excellent recommendation from Skye-N-Rain from the featured movies article. I'm so glad that I watched this movie!!!

This movie is beautifully sad. I don't have the capacity to explain the emotions that this movie provokes. It is a reminder that no matter how long we are here that we can leave something good behind and have an impact on the lives around us. These characters have a great capacity for love. I haven't ventured far from K-Pop, but I just added YUI to my playlist. Her voice is no joke!!! I suggest that even if you don't watch this movie that you look up the soundtrack. It is amazing. I will definitely watch this again. I suggest that everyone watch it once. It is lovely.
