This movie is a definite so-so for most people; a decent work of film but not anything extraordinary or new. The story is warming - predictable (in a non-romantic sense), but meaningful.

To be honest, if it weren't for Nishijima Takahiro I wouldn't have watched this, but after viewing the movie I don't think my feelings for Signal would change much, even if Takahiro wasn't the main character. Aside from seeing a few familiar faces, the acting wasn't anything special enough to take to heart, but Kora Kengo's character left me thinking. He portrayed a great villainous role, but it was unfortunate that his character didn't get to be developed all that well, even in that circumstance, his acting was held to accord and I wasn't all that displeased.

There were little bits and pieces I loved of this film, the rural setting of the film, the cinematography, the simple-artistic vibes, and *cough* Takahiro Nishijima *cough* --

There's no twists or turns, everything is very foreseen; if you're the type of person who likes to just sit back and compliment a director's piece of art - this is your movie, if you're looking for a heated dramatic romance, prepare to be disappointed if this movie is your choosing.

[WARNING: the rating and review I give have the possibility to be subjective due to my preference for the genres, scenes or casts]

I found this movie when I search for related movie or dorama with Signal. Since this is a movie, I decided to download it. I just watch it today and it turns out to be a heartwarming movie (^_^) The conflict of the lead role quite complicated tho, but the settlement is smooth and sweet. How the role care to each other is sweet and heartwarming. The pace is a little bit slow in the beginning, but not that slow so makes you bored. The way they show us how to projecting a movie is interesting. Oh! And the ending song (Mirai by Kylee) is nice to hear (^_^) In the end, this movie makes my day and bring smile to me (^_^)
