Okay, I know this movie has been around for years, but I just recently watched this. And mind you, I watched this without subtitles. Blame the Nihongo Club.
Koizora: Setsunai Koi Monogatari (恋空―切ナイ恋物語, Koizora: Setsunai Koi Monogatari, lit. "Love Sky: A Sad Love Story"?), or Koizora, really holds up to its name. This is one of those "they're young and in love but one is dying" movies. Oops. Yup, that was a spoiler right there. But then again, I could count a number of movies with the same predicament that I wouldn't bother apologizing for that little slip.
The plot, for me, was like a fanfiction - full of happenings at each turn, and I wondered if it could really be possible in real life. But then, I practically don't have a life, so I'm not the one to talk.
Acting? Quite good, for such a young cast. And don't get me started on how my friend swooned over the guy. I say no to the white hair, that is all.
Watch this. See your friends cry. Laugh at them.
Well, yeah, this is what I did.
