    May 22, 2006 good ensemble in the darkness Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I liked this movie. When lights went out, human
    stories continued and perhaps, truer feelings
    and emotions surfaced with more urgency.
    Different stories weaved and told with such
    consideration and understanding that is so typical
    of the many wonderful Japanese movies that I find this
    movie can be watched again on a dark and raining
    night.
    Of course, I always love watching
    toyokawa Etshshi walking with a wine glass in his
    hand......

    This is a great movie. Saw it many years ago in Calif.
    I remembered the excitement it generated amongst
    many college kids who went to movies.
    It's one of the best modern Japanese movies. Unforgettable.

    April 2, 2006 Love vs Tradition Independence vs Duty Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    Lee Young Ae got caught in all kinds of dilemma
    that have to do with her independence
    in love, in career and in duty of tradition. She
    was again excellent in this series. I don't know
    much about Lee Kyung Young. I liked him a lot for
    his role as a mature doctor who is suffocating by
    his wife's smothering and scheming dependence on
    him. In this series, true love triumphs at the end
    (not without cost, but that's life).
    The whole series may not deserve a 10. But for
    Lee Young Ae, a definite 10+.

    March 30, 2006 Rather Average....... Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Both actors did their best. The script was not
    that interesting or original. For me, it was a
    bit of disappointment.

    March 30, 2006 Choi Min Soo's excellent comedic role! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I enjoyed this movie. Choi Min Soo as usual was
    great. Some of the scenes were hysterically funny
    that I laughed so hard.
    Even though Choi is such a wonderful drama actor, he
    is also one of the most attractive comedy great.
    Love to see him in more comedies. Of course, we must
    not forget all the beautiful cakes he baked in this
    movie. Yum....m........

    March 30, 2006 Honest and Moving Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This was a nice surprise. A nice story about the
    loves and struggles of this Taiwan rock group. Before
    long you wanted to root for them because of their
    insistent dream about their music. I particularly
    liked the lyrics of their songs as well as their
    nice music. Best wishes to Shin Yue Tuan!

    March 22, 2006 English Subtitle?? Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I gave a 10 for a movie adapted from Mishima's book
    as a tribute for Mishima since I am a huge fan of
    Mishima's books.
    Can someone tell me when and if you are going to
    have English Subtitle for this movie?

    March 22, 2006 Children were the best actors Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    Interesting story lines. The four child actors were
    very good especially the two girls.
    The actress who played Tumy was excellent. Of course
    Ju Jin Mo never disappoints.
    Packaging was very good. I wish English was showing
    next to the Korean language on each disk cover.
    Alas, the English translation left a lot to be
    desired. You are able to understand it, but needs
    much improvement.

    March 5, 2006 The Very BEST. 10++++++++++++ Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    It's so rare to see a drama presentation that is so
    real, perfectly written and beautifully acted by
    the entire cast. The direction was perfection. Everything was in its proper place and everyword was
    not wasted. The whole series was coherent, honest
    and deeply moving.
    The three main characters were superbly chosen.
    Choi Min Soo and Park San Won were fantastic and
    perfectly convincing. Go Hyun Jung was excellent
    as were the rest of the amazing cast.
    In the background of the political turbulence at that
    time, as in all other countries through history, it's always the students who were the bravest and the most idealistic. The story of the friendship and loyalty
    of two best friends are powerful and unforgettable.
    This is a classic. It deserves much, much more than a 10.

    March 5, 2006 Stylish but Empty Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
    Hitomi was very lovely in this movie so was the
    overall feel of it, very stylish.
    However, I couldn't bring myself to feel strong
    understanding or sympathy for her role in the movie.
    The "tango" lady and her young man both were excellent and she would be a perfect candidate to have an affair or a fling or even shoot her husband when she is mad enough.
    Junichi looked much older than a 19 year old. He
    was not "wide eyed" and "head over heel" enough to
    fall for a much older woman. Perhaps he put too much
    emphasis on his "sophistication".
    The ending did not convince me even though I realize
    it's not easy to do a "May - Dec" movie well.

    February 24, 2006 A Flawless and Wonderful Movie. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This is a movie which represents the artistic merit
    of so many wonderful Japanese movies. It tells a
    moving story of a seventeen year old girl and her
    relationship with her parents. Particularly her
    perception of First Love and her relationship with
    her sick mother and her father. Her mother's old
    music box holds the secret.......
    Tanaka Rena is PERFECTION in this movie. The rest
    of cast were all excellent. It's such a joy to watch
    a movie that flows naturally in exquisite timing and
    perfect detail. Nothing is overdone even including
    the beautiful music. I LOVE this movie!

    February 21, 2006 A cool and sleek movie Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    Fujiki Naohito and Nakama Yukie are perfectly
    casted in this movie. I havn't figured out exactly
    why I like Nao, but I do.
    The plot holds your attention. The sets sleek and the
    pace never hesitates.
    I like this movie very much.

    February 20, 2006 I love this movie! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This is my favorite movie by Hou Xiao Xien. I have
    already watched it several times. Every time, you
    learn something new and wonderful.
    This is also Hototo Yo's movie debut. She is superb and
    a very natural actress. She also has a very interesting
    and intelligent face. Hope to see many more movies
    with her in it.(aside from being a great singer).
    Asano Tadanobu needs no introduction. He is perfect
    for his role. I love the mood, the details and the pace
    in which director Hou tells his story.
    Don't miss this movie.

    February 20, 2006 Great effort, Interesting, not plausible Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    I am very glad to see Chinese drama series taking
    a giant leap trying to do something interesting,
    artful and visually and emotionally expressive.
    I like the general concept of the story because it's
    a mutilayered love story, it's a survival and struggle of the less fortunate and it's a suspense drama.
    That's good.
    However, the legal procedure doesn't seem plausible.
    I am at loss trying to explain what the earnest lawyer
    sees in the young woman/model. A typical airhead.
    What can he possibly talk or discuss any topic with
    her? For that, I also find the lawyer not terribly
    interesting himself. May be I am too hard on him.
    Liu Ye's character is very well played. Again, very
    weak and limited by his niceness. If only someone
    makes a stand and be completely honest.
    A great effort was being made for this drama. It
    certainly held your attention. For that, it deserves
    a "9" in my book. All the supporting actors were
    excellent.
    Change some personalities (or actors) of the three main
    characters and a different ending, this could have
    been a truly interesting and great drama.

  • February 19, 2006 Growing up is hard to do Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I enjoyed this series for three reasons:
    1. One can always relate to pains of growing up whether
    it has to do with being a teenager, or young
    adults in a business world, or young people trying
    hard to find themselves after setbacks.
    2. Takenouchi Yataka was so sincere in questioning
    "is this all there is?" about his own life that's
    constantly under pressure.
    3. Hirosue Ryoko's excellent performance about
    growing up without her mother at her side and her
    love for her grandfather who raised her. Also
    being a teenager and having crashes on the men
    who showed up at her door (the inn).
    Good ensemble cast and heartwarming stories.

    My previous comment about finding only one on the list

    Using the side bar on Chinese, I was able to get
    a whole list of his books. Sorry for my impatience

    February 18, 2006 Excellent ! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I was very surprised to find the only book of
    Matsumoto Seicho's listed here while some really
    mediocre to really bad books took more prominent
    positions. Does it have to do with foreign
    translation/publishing, popular demand or simply bad taste?
    This book is not the very best of Matsumoto Seicho.
    Still, it's better than most. It deserves an
    excellent rating. The English translations of some
    of his best books are truly great. The translators
    are mostly university professors or scholars. That's
    the reason.

    February 16, 2006 Takakura Ken and his Train Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    A man, his trains and his beloved family.
    I can't think of anyone else who can better play
    the man other than Takakura Ken. He was perfection.
    The deep snow and a solitary man waiving his sign
    for his train will stay with you as long as
