Tuesday Cinema: ただ、君を愛してる

Yes, that's right, this week for Tuesday Cinema, we are watching a Japanese movie ただ、君を愛してる (Tada, Kimi o Aishiteru) called in English Heavenly Forest. 
It has been a long time since I had a Japanese movie to write about. I hope you'll enjoy the change. 

The story: Makoto is in love with Miyuki, because she is cute and beautiful. One day he mets Shizuru who wants to be friend with him and starts following him until he teaches her photography. Shizuru is not really like every one else and she doesn't seem to fit with the university environment and Makoto's other friends. As time passes and their relationship deepens, Makoto realizes that there might be more than friendship between him and the strange girl.

My feelings: If you want to watch this, prepare a box of tissues. I mean it's a Japanese love story so there isn't really much you can do about it, you'll have to cry.
This movie is nicely movie toward it's goal of leaving you with a half empty feeling of loss. Everything is going fine until everything goes wrong and even if you should have seen it coming, you know you didn't. 
The scenery is really beautiful too I guess that's the reason why it's translated in English as Heavenly Forest as most of the key scenes in the movie happen in a forbidden forest or take you there.
