I happened to see the movie The Age of Adaline the other day and ended up over thinking the movie more than I wanted to. The story sounds pretty cool. A woman that never ages. There are so many directions you can go with that story, so how did this movie do? My friends and I debated a lot through this movie about what we would do if we were the characters.
I’d like to talk about my favorite Japanese movie of all time, [いま、会いにゆきます] (ima ai ni yukimasu) or the English title, “Be with you”. This movie is a heartwarming love story that was released in 2004. I don’t think it is well known outside of Japan, China, and Korea. I consider this a hidden gem of Japanese cinema.
