The movie is a direct adaptation of the manga. Nearly all the points in the plot are there, and more over are played really well. Not only the characters look like those in the book, but also portray their emotions very well. Although the story seems quite depressing there's a lot of positive emotions. The plot therefore may appeal to many young people on who are to start an adult life. It's also about the importance of friendships and relations with others. Obviously it revolves around music - which was really well matched to the overall feeling of the movie. It is very raw and full of emotions those bad and good, longing and happiness. A something to come back to, definitely.
