This movie is the story of the friendship and love between Yuuji, Satoshi and Karin. The three of them meet each other when they are small and have a deep friendship. Both boys seem to like Karin. But then, Satoshi has to move away because his mother is ill and they end up going separate ways.
The pure boy Satoshi is, he actually keeps his promise he made to his friends: to open an aqua plant shop called "Trash". That way, 13 years later, a girl stands in front of his door: Karin. Why did she suddenly appear after 13 years? And why doesn't she tell him, that she is Karin, but rather tells him she is the model, Suzune?
I already knew that this would be a sad movie, because the title suggested that. "Say hello for me"? That means she can't do it herself. I was really curious to which of the guys she wants to say 'hello', but the movie wasn't really about that. It was more about their friendship, about overcoming probems and that time never stops. It's one of those movies that wants to make you aware of how precious time and your life are. But in the process of telling this, I got bored a lot of times. Because there was nothing exciting, only depressing. At least I felt so much pressure from the movie. The only thing I could really enjoy were all the aqua plants and the face of Yamada Takayuki.
It really is a slow movie and I could overlook that if they at least added some excitement. But there never was a fight or someone who talked louder. There wasn't even a scene that made me cry really hard, because I just couldn't connect to the character.
For the actors: They really had good chemistry. (But on a side note: Masami is doing things wrong, if the childhood-friends of her never are able to tell her they love her for 10-20 years. Like here or in Proposal Daisakusen.) The actors also played really well, just that I had problems getting interested in them, aside from the main character. They also left me with some questions about Karin, which made me a bit unhappy with the movie.
