User Reviews
Only once in a while experience ...
I am not surprised that some of the people were non-plussed after watching this movie ...Some saw only bcz they were stuck on a 12 hour flight.

To understand this movie u would have to understand the piece of Japanese folk dance at the end[ though that has got nothing to do with the movie ] or indeed the Japanese culture itself.

For most it''s nothing more than a mild curiosity or a mere moment of interest, here n there ...

But when u watch it for a little longer u would understand how gentle, how subtle and yet so firm, the emotions are ..

How beautiful the noncomprehending noises r in the background .. N before u know u r floating in a river of solitude ..

Yes! this one is for those who love poetry, who admire beauty. Numbers r not just dead figures but each has a character like a human being ..

We have come to expect a regular dose of sex content in such movies from the Hollywood .. I guess for them it won''t do without a boisterous love seen when there is a talk of extra-marital love affair ...

Anyways, there r so many things that I can talk about this movie but I won''t, I am not even going to make an attempt.

However somethings I will cherish forever .. Eri Fukatsu''s smile, Professor''s character, The movie''s feel, Root ..

Am I the only one I wonder .. surely it can''t be!
