Movie Review: Be With You (5*)


[i-phone image]

A japanese love story that moved me to tears, I strongly recommend watching this. The story is about Takumi and Mio. After the death of Mio, Takumi and his 5-year old son Yuji grieve her loss. On her first death anniversary, they meet a woman with an uncanny resemblance to Mio but who has no recollection of who she is. They bring her home thinking that she is Mio('s spirit) who has returned and family life resumes. However, their happy times together are interrupted by the discovery of Mio's diary.

The ending is the part that made me cry buckets. I can't say what the plot is or i'll spoil it. I can only say it's really magical and the way everything pieces together is ingenious.
