Heavenly Forest

Also known as 『ただ、君を愛してる』.  7.5* out of 10.

The plot itself was a bit meh, perhaps too sappy.  It was the portrayal of emotions of various characters that scored the most.  The runtime of 116 minutes felt almost too short because of it, and a couple more minutes in exchange for a bit deeper bite into them wouldn't have hurt.

Oh, and let's not forget the beautiful cinematography.  Alright, not all of it, but virtually every scene in the forest looks stunningly beautiful.  I'd also say the scenes set in New York were pretty good, but I may be biased here 'cause I've been to the city a couple of times and I loved every minute of it.  XD

* My personal score is 8.5, which includes one point for the fact that I watched it with Eugene (and cried a river XD).  ♥♥♥♥♥
