    Breath-taking 5

    This movie has so many beautiful aspects, but I'll begin with the plot. It's not just a romance, and at times the subject is actually shyed away from. This movie has a main theme of 'surviving what life throws at you' and dealing with a range of difficulties. Anna Tsuchiya did very well in portraying such a strong woman who isn't willing to live her life for anyone except herself. The imagery in this movie is absolutely breathtaking. The sets and costumes were amazingly detailed but not 100% authentic which added to the artistic appeal of the movie. In the end, if it comes down to whether one would watch it over and over, I'd say I would.

    tender..like falling cherryblossom. 5

    No doubtly director Mika Ninagawa,and the rest of the group delivered a movie of a century... honestly visually the most eyes melting movie of recent history anywhere, lot of effort is truely put on here The cinematography is breathtaking, It is also heart warming to see that Ninagawa did actually succeeded to include and transform his trademark on motion picture, specially when this is her first shot in this area. Everything truly works perfectly the score, plot, lighting actors it's like a major step to something really unique and unseen.

    Simply beautiful 5

    This movie is beautiful. Simply beautiful. It has great colors, a really nice scenography, a beautiful score (I've really loved the music) and the performance by the actors (especially Anna, she's beautiful to look at and seeing her act is just as good) is awesome. This all on top of an interesting and nice story. The package is also really, really cool. The English subtitles are the icing on the cake. Really recommended.
