Everything is pretty, almost mystical

Im not really into musical type movie but i find this one pretty enjoyable from start to finish. The songs all are good, it fit the atmosphere. The dim light, the colors make it feels serene and mysterious. The scene where he chase her running through the alley, it was like an illusion, mystical, alluring you to leave reality.

Truth be told, i was kinda tricked into watching this since no where was stated that this is a musical, would be more hesitant otherwise but im glad i watched it. Maybe it help that the musical wasnt dance heavy. plus all the songs somewhat fit my taste make it all the more enjoyable.



[Slight Spoiler below!!!!]

The story itself is pretty decent. It took a rather subtle approach, tho the ending is kinda anti-climatic. And yeah as you probably have guessed, in a true jmovie fashion, the ending kinda left you hanging. LOL. But as some people said, the process worth more than the end result. All in all its a pretty good movie.

It's the journey that matters the most, not the destination

It's a musical which consists of 15 beautiful songs, very well written according to the scenario and witty too. It's an open end if you take it one way and it's a closer if you take it the other way. The main protagonist, an elite banker who got demoted to a village branch, acts as a catalyst to unify two separated people. He might have lost, yet he won in a way. His self-discovery of what it takes to be happy in life, makes the movie interesting.

Recommended only if you like musicals and open ending (though it's a closer for me). The journey matters most than the destination, it's that kind of movie.

It's a LA of Manga of same name.
