This is not your average movie. You will love it if you watch it with an open mind. This movie is a beautiful insight into the human psyche and the how human perceive others as well as themselves.

First half of the film I was pulling my hair and trying to come up with a million reasons to justify the events happening in the film. Almost till the very end I was trying to anticipate the next step but I couldn't.

While I was actually watching this film I kept asking myself "Why am I watching this anyway?" but when I movie ended I was glad I saw it.

This is not a movie for everyone. Some will love it some will hate it some will find it ridiculous and some may scoff at the concept of the movie but none-the-less I urge everyone to give this movie a shot and if you won't understand the movie now, I am sure that at some point in your life you might look back at it and realize that it does make sense.

Another plus point is that the acting is brilliant and of course also the fact that it has Kamenashi Kazuya in it ^_^

The synopsis made this movie sound so simple. Originally I didn't plan on watching it because it seemed like just another take on the rich girl- poor boy plot but I was so wrong.

I decided to watch this movie because of Yoshitaka-san and this truly was a beautiful movie. There was nothing dramatic in it. There was no suspense in the story. No twists or evil plots. There were no villains or heroes and no evil parents or scheming girlfriends and confusing love triangles. But none-the-less the movie was bitter-sweet. It had a carefree air throughout yet it drew me in with every scene.

I don't think that the story is very unique or unconventional but the way everything came together left me with a warm feeling inside. The cinematography, script, directing, cast, acting, music and everything was in harmony. I loved watching this movie.

If someone would have told me this story orally then it probably would not have as much as an impact as when I saw the actors living the roles. The performances were truly exceptional. This is definitely a must watch from my side ^__^

A movie about human greed, punishment, desire and betrayal. Taking place inside the Korean palace halls this movie is beautifully portrayed. The acting was brilliant. The King's obsession and desperate actions and rash decisions along with conspiracies taking place throughout within the walls kept me on the edge.

The massive bloodshed and torture made me feel like I was back in the historical times. The Queen Hwa Yeon was a complete surprise package till the very end.

Though I would have preferred for the beginning of the movie to show the past of the three main characters with slightly more depth. I thought that portion was rushed and left me quite confused.

This is a wonderful movie to watch but be warned it has ADULT CONTENT in it.

At first I wondered what could be so great about this plot and how they could make it interesting of 11 LONG episodes. This drama stayed in my plan to watch list for the longest time and I have skipped over this for other dramas plenty of times but eventually my love for Kitagawa Keiko could not be overlooked for long so I finally decided to watch this show. What I never expected was for this show to get me hooked on from the first few minutes of the first episode itself. All the characters were so brilliant and acting was out of this world. The surprise package for me was Gackt of whom I have never heard of before but fell in love with at the very first site. The story is definitely executed very well and the mystery surrounding each dream and the main characters itself kept me on a roller coaster ride through the show. The ending was really surprising and mysterious and I ironically felt that it was the best way to end the episode even though I would have loved to see more. Gackt I want to see you in many more dramas too!

At first I thought what could they possibly put in 2 hours of movie. I wondered if I would get bored but that was most certainly not the case. This movie left me curious at many points and made me laugh throughout. The actors play their roles amazingly well and the story is well-paced as well. Though the beginning was slow and made me question wasting 2 hours on this movie it picked up fast and did not fail to impress. With a sweet story with plenty of comedy, mystery and male-bonding. This is a movie to which every fan can relate to at some point.

Overall this is a brilliant movie which had a terrific ending. It is a amazing for a one time watch and I have a feeling that I will be watching this again in the future too.

This is a beautiful movie about a victim of rape and how she goes about in life after the incident shakes her world through and through. Despite her wanting to live life leaving the past behind, the incident haunts her again and again and ruins her life. How she bears through all the obstacles, failed suicide attempts? How society treats her? Plus more such situations leaves a lasting effect on the viewer. Maki Yoko-san has acted brilliantly to portray the character of Mizutani. The story has many elements to it, hurt, pain, penance, forgiveness, youth mindset towards women and up to some extend it also sheds some light on the manner in which the police's and journalists' behaviour. There is a certain depth to the story which is beautifully expressed. But at the end of it is a tale about how a victim and the victim's perpetrator live together under one roof both willing and to some extent happily.

I think this movie is not for an average drama lover. Many would skip over this movie after just reading the summary while some would drop this movie after seeing the beginning.

I admit this movie is not the most stimulating for people interested in hormone-crazed types drama characters but this movie is truly a breathtaking film if you sit down to watch it without any pre-conceived notions or expectations.

I think in this type of film different people will have different perspectives of this movie. Some may think that this is a movie showing political revolution or economic oppression or any other possibility. For me it was the journey of a man from a life of familial bliss to going through depression and possibly hallucinations and how he coped with it.

This is truly an intriguing film for the creative souls and art lovers. It may also stimulate you if you are into philosophy or human psychology. But fair warning, you will definitely not finish the 72 minutes with a sense of closure. For me Toshiaki Toyoda has worked magic and the cast, story, music and performance are all amazing and applause worthy.

I found the story very unique and the acting was absolutely brilliant. This film definitely has it's appeal and it is a very sweet watch. Beautifully directed with an amazing cast and music.

This movie focuses on three travelers who seek refuge in Rashomon. Two of them have come from a court hearing and pondering over the intricacies and nuances of the various stories provided by the witnesses. The third traveler listens to these stories and becomes equally intrigued. Finally at the end of the movie all the pieces come together which leaves humanity of humans in question.

I would suggest this movie on a slow peaceful day when you are in a brilliant mood and completely relaxed.

The movie is good take into the mind of a murderer. Though I felt the movie was a bit slow but I loved the cinematography and the overall feel of the movie. The shift between the past and present was done very realistically. Some of the scenes were very captivating and it was nice to see murder from a murderer's point of view.

The acting was top-notch and the music also enhanced the scenes of the movie. It was also mesmerising to see the conflict going on in the murderer's head between his conscience and mind.On one hand he was trying to justify his act of running away while on the other hand his conscience was eating him little by little. The battle was constantly raging in his mind.

This movie really takes us through a journey of the murderer's psych but on the other hand it is a bit slow in the middle but he ending (despite us knowing it already) is worth waiting for.

Okay. This is the type of movie to see when you are utterly bored out of your mind and have nothing else to do. It is a whole lot of humour if you don't mind extreme pevertness with a sprinkle of weird.

The story revolves around a sexy new teacher who enters an all boys school and is immediately in the competition for "Who shall bed her first!". All sorts of improper behaviour is seen from the teachers and students and a very unique guy with a very unique problem ;)

This movie is really a good laugh and the unexpected ending leaves you baffled! At least I was left with my mouth wide open and jaw touching the ground.

Have a nice time watching. But you have been warned.

First of all I would like to point out that I have read the manga so I started watching this with high expectations. The movie was a total disaster for me and the only reason I completed it was because of my respect for the manga. I really didn't like the cast even though I have liked all the previous works of Takei Emi that I have seen. The acting was passable but really didn't strike me as something great. I even failed to understand why the movie had the kiddish sound effects at the beginning of the movie for the blinking of eyes but nothing later on. For me this movie lacked consistency and also the script failed to wow me. While watching this film there was no tingly feeling in my stomach or urge to smack both tsubaki(s) when they broke up and were not making up when they obviously should have. The beach scene was definitely one of my favourite in the manga and all the magic from the scene was sucked out from the movie. Overall I would say that I would have preferred not to have seen the movie so as to keep the manga pristine and untainted from the disaster created by the movie.

But I guess if you haven't read the manga then this would a good movie for passing time but I still would not recommend it. There are better options out there.

This is a brilliant drama with an amazing plot and exceptional actors. All the actors fitted the role so perfectly and the script was executed wonderfully. I had a ball watching this show with the right amount of humour, sadness and drama. Oguri Shun, Mizushima Hiro and Yukagawa Yuriko were so good that their acting just flowed together and the chemistry between the three was never too much nor too less. The ending also left with very satisfied because in the end the characters never lost their essence and stayed true to themselves. I think everything in this drama complemented each other very well and I would certainly deem this as a must watch especially if you are a fan of either of the main leads. This drama leaves you laughing out loud, irritated like crazy and craving to ease the worries of the characters.

The whole movie leaves you questioning whether this world is truly just black or white or simply shades of grey.

This movie is sheer genius. At first I was hesitant to watch this because the cast didn't appeal to me much and I figured it would be just another psycho-killer movie but boy was I wrong. This movie turned out to be a roller coaster ride. Even though most of the cast was made up of children they did a fantastic role. The story was brilliantly scripted and directed. All the time you are on edge trying to figure out what is happening and just when you think you have got the final piece of the puzzle you find out the you were solving the wrong one. This is definitely a must watch! The ending especially leaves you baffled and wondering 'what just happened there?'

I did not start watching this drama with any expectations and I ended up totally confused. The beginning was nice and hilarious and many parts in between were extremely funny too but I felt that there was no flow and the story was severely disjointed though the main plot had a lot of potential. But if you want to catch 60 minutes of pointless humour on a boring day with nothing better to do then this is a good choice. A warning though - please leave your common sense a mile behind if you truly want to enjoy this.

This was a breath taking, soul shattering, enlightening, blissful, sad, silly, reminiscent, tear jerking, smile evoking movie and so much more. This movie was simply combination of everything and had a perfect balance of everything. A movie worth watching again and again and again and again!

This is a MUST MUST MUST watch! Do not miss it! You certainly won't regret it :D
