Plot

After the tears are shed, a new day begins... Adapted from the same-titled novel, 1 Litre of Tears is based on the true story about a girl's long fight with an incurable disease. A collection of her diary entries, chronicling her experiences and passion and perseverance for life, were published in 1986, and the book immediately became a bestseller. Her inspiring story was adapted into both a hit TV series starring Sawajiri Erika and a moving film directed by Okamura Riki. Promising new actress Asae Onishi stars as the film's tragic heroine, while Kazuko Kato portrays her supportive mother. Keep the tissue box near, as 1 Litre of Tears promises to touch the hearts of viewers with its tragic story and universal sentiments. One day on her way to school, middle school student Aya (Asae Onishi) suddenly falls to the ground. The doctor diagnoses her with spinocerebellar degeneration, a rare and incurable neurological disease. Entering high school, Aya's condition continues to worsen as physical movements become more difficult. Forced to attend a special boarding school, she nonetheless finds hope and happiness through the support of her new friends and family. Working hard, she completes her high school education and bravely begins a new stage in her life, despite her weak health and continuous trips to the hospital. Aya never gives up, living each day of her life to the fullest until the very end.

Praveen i`m in the middle of the movie now, can`t wait to know who the actress is? from the beginning of the movie i`ve said to myself, "do i really need to shed tears to watch this film?" But, i don`t have the answer. perhaps i`ll find it in the end of the movie! and thank goodness that the language in this movie is so simple so that i could understand some of these japanese words too...........! Take care.....................

Ikeuchi Tian I Love this film. It makes me sad when I remember this movie. Every scene speaks a thousand message. Really amazing. Now I'm so curious about Aya kito.

beki jathang a heart touching story

Ayame Itami Amazing story with so many touching scenes. Words can't describe how wonderful, breath-taking and fantastic this film is. It made me aware of the sufferings of those who are not as healthy as I am, and to make me value the life that has been given to me. This a movie that will make you cry not only one litre of tears, but two.

Kago chobin I'm very much impress by her strength...no such words i've left 2 salute her!

non sibi Great comment HK Neo, it is inspiring. Thank you and GBU.

HK Neo Reviews All in all, 1 Litre of Tears is a timeless movie about a timeless theme. Countless of times, we have watched sporting teams go against the odds and never stop trying. The Socceroos, Steve Waugh, Justin Langer, Shane Heal, just to name a few, are people who strive towards the never give up category. Aya’s life story shows that this can be applied into life. A true inspiration and a defining tale, that shows the mental strength of humanity and how being alive is a beautiful thing. Yes, there are plenty of downs in your life, but after all if you give up; it means that you will never have a chance. If you try your best, you got the chance of a toss of a coin and moving on without regrets…

I rate it 9/10
