When two souls find one another, nothing can tear them apart. Widower Takumi lives a quiet life with his six-year-old son Yuji after the loss of wife and mother Mio. Yuji unfailingly remembers her promise to him: "I'll be with you again in a year's time, when the rains come." On the first anniversary of her passing, Takumi and Yuji are taking a walk in the woods when they come across a woman sheltering from a monsoon downpour. She bears an uncanny resemblance to Mio, but has no recollection of who she is or what she is doing there. Family life resumes from where they left off, while Takumi and Mio's memories of their first encounter in high school come flooding back. However, their new life together is interrupted by the discovery of Mio's old diary, which reveals the secrets of her past and how they must say goodbye once more in six weeks time.

This movie is simply amazing.The story is full of love within the family which is heartwarming and can move anyone in tears.After I read the "coming back to life"concept of the movie.I said"Nothing new" ,"I know what will happen" but turned out wrong.The story is really different and has it's unique story that unpredictable. The three main casts did an outstanding performance that makes the movie more special.Though you might find the movie a little slow,I think it just help you feel the emotions and makes you go deeper into the story.The music is also good and makes the movie more beautiful and heartbreaking.The Ending is really awesome and not disappointing.It explains and answers all the mysteries and questions while leaving the audiences in a emotional state.Overall this movie is not a waste of time and REALLY worth watching.

This was a terrific film. It's a well-written romance about a woman who returns from the grave to visit her husband and young son. And since I enjoy the sci-fi angle in movies and dramas, the whole idea of 'returning from the grave' didn't bother me at all (especially since it's not a horror-type situation).

As I watched the movie, I began to care for the three main characters. This was due to the top-notch acting of the cast: Takeuchi Yuko's Mio was a strong, graceful and warm character. Nakamura Shido & Takei Akashi were both fine in their roles.

The photography and the music added to the overall success of the movie. The only downside that some viewers might have with the movie is its sentimentality. But for me, it was an enjoyable movie experience. I still have my 'teru teru bozu' doll I made after watching this emotional film.
