Solanin is also a beautiful story where the main characters are connected by music. Both movies are directed by the same person, which is a good point in this case.

Both movies are about music and are quite emotional. They are also directed by the same person.

I wasn't able to read the manga yet, because it has to be published in our country. First I was unsure if I should buy this manga, now I'm sure: the movie is absolutely great (as well as the music) so I have to buy the original manga.

The pictures I have seen from the inside were so great.

Wonderful movie about the hard parts of life, the struggles and dispair. But also about love, friendship and the will to grow and the will to live although it's hard to handle.
I cried while listening to the last song.

Manga is awesome, movie is awesome. The trailer was perhaps too revealing, but that's probably it. Highly recommended

The manga is awesome, but this movie is just plain boring.

That movie is a freaking masterpiece!
I'm not really into asian dramas, but this was so realistic, so amazing. Anything like the other movies I've seen. I'm definitely impressed.

It was just perfect. I haven't read the manga, but I'm going to. But that movie whether it's the same as manga or they changed it too much was amazing. And the cast was outstanding.

I just so hoped he wouldn't die, that he would just have that accident... But if he survived if wouldn't be jdrama enough. And then when she learned to play the guitar. I wish I could find that motivation for myself, motivation being escape from reality while playing.

Amazing, amazing, amazing!
