Yes, it is a nice movie. Expect the unexpected, especially towards the end of the show..basically a love movie...against all odds?

Enjoy. :)

I enjoyed it too!

Though I think the book is much better, just like harry portter, Lord of rings. There are parts in the movie where you wonder what's the meaning of showing that..and the book would give you a great insight .

The girls are amazing!

Overall, it was a good entertainment but was really "Hollywood" - too extravagant. The way they wore kimono wasn't good either but I guess unless you are Japanese, you wouldn't care this kind of stuff.

Many of my local friends said it would have been much better if it was played by Japanese actresses with subtitles because many of the actors seemed to have to put more focus on their pronunciation rather than acting.

Heard some scenes were cut in Singapore (as usual) too but it was still a good passtime.

Enjoy!

If you are hoping for a movie that is true to the book (like any are :roll: ), or really "Japanese", you will be disappointed. I thought it was pretty lame.
