Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Based on an inspirational true love story. Sakutaro (Tsuyoshi Kusanagi), a science fiction writer, meets Setsuko (Yuko Takeuchi) in high school, and they eventually marry. Setsuko complains about stomach pains and finds out that she has colon cancer. Hearing that laughter could help, Sakutaro composes a story each day his wife lives. In total, he made 1,778 stories.
Very heart warming, and yet heart breaking
If you didn’t know, this movie is based on a true story. Although, it may seem impossible for such a man to exist, it is partially based on an actual Japanese sci-fi novelist. If you are looking for something to blow your mind or to make you cry to realize what you don’t or do have, watch this. I highly recommend it. =) The way this movie was directed was really simply, but the script was so deep. Light and quiet at times (don’t watch this if you get bored of Indie movies like these), when the moment of tension finally breaks, you’ll surely cry. ^^
Smap’s Kusanagi plays a man that I wish I could meet. He dedicated his life to make his wife laugh.
So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and watch their life together..
