Haevenly Forest | Japanese Movie Review

ただ、君を愛してる ♥ Heavenly Forest

Since a long time I wanted to watch the Japanese movie “Heavenly Forest” I am sure it is over one year ago (or probably more…) that I found the Trailer on Youtube, but I never had time to see it. Today, I suddenly wanted to watch a romantic and sad movie, so I have chosen it. A very emotional story about Friendship, Love and Faith. I couldn’t stop crying.

“Heavenly Forest” is about a photographer named Makoto, who travels to New York during Christmas to look for his best friend, Shizuru. The two first met when Makoto attended his university entrance ceremony. Due to his inferiority complex, Makoto tends to shy away from other people but Shizuru managed to make him open up to her. Because of their friendship, Shizuru also ended up taking an interest in photography and the two often went to a forest to take pictures. Shizuru wants nothing else but to be by Makoto’s side so when he started liking another girl called Miyuki. Shizuru decided that she too will like Miyuki and becomes her friend. One day, Makoto asked Shizuru what present she’d like to receive for her birthday. Shizuru, who wanted to enter a photography competition, had an idea to take a picture of the two of them kissing in a forest. Makoto agreed to do this and the two kissed for the very first time. Ever since that day, however, Shizuru disappears from Makoto’s life. (asianmediawiki.com)

PS. the ending theme song is from Ai Otsuka – Renai Shashin (恋愛写真)

May some of you know Hiroshi Tamaki 玉木宏 (the actor who is playing Makoto)? I am sure you recognize him from the Japanese Dorama “Nodame Cantabile” のだめカンタービレ I really enjoyed watching these hilarious series, I particularly love Nodame-chan, she’s such a funny and silly girl. A must for everybody who loves classical music!
