タイヨウのうた (Midnight Sun)

En français

タイヨウのうた is a Japanese movie by Norihiro Koizumi from 2006.

Kaoru Amane dream of becoming a singer but most of all dream about a normal life. She is suffering from XP (Xeroderma Pigmentosum) which means that the sun light or more specifically any UV light would create so much damage to her that it would damage her nervous system. Most people suffering from XP don't survive beyond 20. That fore she can only go out at night and plays the guitar in the street. She always looks at a boy coming to the bus stop in front of her house until the day when she sees him in the street.

I find this movie by accident and I'm glad I find it. It's a very nice story about courage. I would just say : "Don't let the things you can't do stop you from doing the things you can/want to do."
