Makoto just lost his job as a photographer. That's the day when he receives a letter from his ex girlfriend, Shizuru, who invites him to her first photography exhibition in New York. Being mad and jealous, Makoto throws her letter away.

This was a surprising movie in a lot of ways. Starting by the fact that Matsuda Ryuuhei's character is narrating the entire story in English. And then, I was expecting something sappy and romantic, but actually this isn't a love story. It’s a journey of self realization captured in a series of moving snapshots that express something far more genuine and inspiring than the average boy-meets-girl-loses-girl love story.

The acting from Matsuda Ryuuhei and Hirosue Ryoko was fantastic. Actually, they're the only ones I can call actors here, but well, it's mainly them during most of the screentime. Ryuuhei has his usual presence and charisma, and Hirosue is sweet and unconventional enough to make the romance believable.

The movie has its flaws; sometimes its heavy handed and a bit manic (especially in the climax), and there are things that you really are going to have to make your own mind up about (movies shouldn't try to be so many different things all at once). But overall, its visual narrative beauty outshines any possible stumble, and it's worth seeing the fine performances by the two leads.

it was awesome and unique, the story, plotline, shizuru's photography style :)

Both this and tada, kimi wo aishiteru really have their own charms.

I really really love this film. (was it meant to be a little/really funny? or am i the only idiot who found herself laughing at some parts. Especially with the gay secret dealer guy or something who loved japanese men, but said the main guy, Segawa, was not his type XD lol)
..but seriously, compared to tada, kimi wo aishiteru, which was really sad and heartbreaking, this movie was even more sad and heartbreaking (and even a little scary... but that may have been because I watched it at night... -.- lol). There's a huge difference between the two versions, but I'm unable to point it out. Either way, I love them both.. this version just got to me a little more. :)
