Takuma, a boy who is told he will die before he’s 20, and Mayu, a girl who is in love with him…
The story begins when they are little kids. Mayu, whose father is a doctor, meets Takuma, who is hospitalized in her father’s workplace. They develop feelings for each other, but Mayu learns of Takuma’s grave illness and that he will die before he turns 20. The distraught children make one promise for an uncertain future.
Time passes, and the girl becomes a young woman, and the boy, a young man. Mayu continues to support and love Takuma. On the other hand, Takuma, who knows his days are numbered, pushes away his feelings for Mayu and distances himself from her. He cannot stand to see her cry or hurt her more than he already has. Then Mayu meets another man who has feelings for her, and Takuma meets a woman who has the same illness, and their feelings for each other begin to waver.
Misunderstandings, unsaid thoughts, the frustrations and chagrin of youth… What will become of their love while the clock keeps ticking away in Takuma’s life?
The Song is sang by Hirai Ken 平井堅 called “Boku wa Kimi ni Koi wo suru”
This film was recommended by my co-worker. After doing some research I found the story is orginally from a manga called Boku No Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu by Aoki Kotomi.
I read the manga before watching the movie, so I can get an idea of what it’s all about. When I first saw Inoue Mao, I was already caught by her beauty, she has this cute/beauty to her and an awesome smile! Love her big eyes too! So damn cute. She portrait Mayu very well!
I’m not a big drama fan but this movie did it for me. GO WATCH IT NOW. You will not be disappointed!
