If you like sad, romance, friendship, family, and slice of life movies. You'll probably enjoy this one, and even if you don't it's a movie worth watching at least once.

This is such a sweet yet sad and beautiful yet heartbreaking story. It reminded me a lot of the American movie A Walk To Remember or the Japanese movie Tada Kimi Wo Ashiteru. In a nutshell the main girl meets the guy accidentally due to a mix-up and they start dating. The guy later discovers that she has cancer, and she breaks up with her even though he doesn't want to. In order to not completely spoil the end I won't go into more details, but essentially it's about living your life to the end with someone that you love.

This movie had me crying like crazy -even more than the drama/movie 1 Litre of Tears did- The story is so touching yet real that it caught me by surprise. I'm not a cryer and I didn't expect this movie to be as much of a tear jerker, so keep plenty of kleenex handy while watching!

Acting was great by all parties, but at the very beginning I found the main actress a little stiff in a way. However she found herself toward the middle and end, it made up for the bad beginning.

Music: I loved the ending song and there were some good songs throughout the movie. Nothing earth shattering amazing, but everything was ok.

Rewatch Value: I sure will rewatch this movie again.In my opinion it's a classic and will be a favorite of mine.
