Plot

Minato is a young girl who was traumatized at a young age by being abandoned by her parents and left with her senile grandmother. She frequently corresponds with a pen-pal named Night, a boy about the same age as her that she's never actually seen in person. Although Minato and Night are very different - Minato is upbeat while Night is brooding, they get along anyway and she regularly updates him on the happenings in her daily life. Minato is even willing to confide in Night that she's falling in love with a boy she's recently met named Sho.

Clarkdale44 Well, Great concept. I liked it throughout the ending. A really nice change of pace.

I will give it 6.5/10(Great story)

Eko If anyone knows anything similar to this movie please tell me!! I loved it, with the split-personailty aspect, sooo cool

Mute Absolutely adored this movie. It had a slow start, which wasn't too fun I kept thinking "I want to see more of night". His character was the most interesting. However when the story got more interesting and all the flash back scenes were occuring. Night finally showed up more.

I am totally supporting MinatoxNight. though thats a little weird XD
The end is a bit sad, to me but I guess it had to happen.

Night was sooo cool, at times I forgot it was a girl playing him. Definetly one of my top 10 favorite Movies. A MUST WATCH!!

Horikita Maki is superb at both her roles in the movie. Night <3 totally my favorite Character.

Mauricio Hello

Anyone knows where is the red mail box where Minato used to go? I'm in Tokyo and I want to take pictures from there...

Regards,

Mauricio.

ugh Thanks for the spoilers Kimberly...

silvia magaly wow aunque solamente la encontré con subtitulos en ingles lo pokito que entendí me fascino.me encantan los cambios de horikita maki es una excelente actriz y lo demostró en esta película es una de las películas japonesas que me dejaron fascinada sin duda es una de mis actrices preferidas sho y minato me fascinaron. osea que noche, según estaba enamorado de Minato y la dejo ir para que fuera feliz con Sho

Anne Omg! I LOVED it! At first it was sort of confussing but I kept watching it and everything started making sense. Night is an amazing character! The actress did an awesome job in playing night.

Luca I've watched it, and I liked it so much. I've also subbed it in my language. However, it's a really psychological film, and for 20-30 minutes I dinn't understand too much, but while you're watchin' it, you're gotten able to understand. If you like the genre, I recommend it.

emuyam this movie is really something that i can remember. I was wondering how did the writer come up with the story maybe he or she had basis for this,,,...interesting and though it doesn't really make any sense to those insensitive people maybe people should watch more of this kind of movie to be unselfish enough for others,,...

sophia How was the movie? I have not watched it. How did you guys watch it?

Kimberley The movie was excellent. Night was an AMAZING character and i really did feel sorry for him. I nearly cried at the end!! I mean, he had to sacrifice his self! I was a little annoying though how it went through so much of it again just so you could realise that minato was night ( which was obvios when she looks in the mirror and says 'night?) all you needed there were quick flashbacks not exactly the whole thing. But yes. Night was my fave character!!!

Lana This movie was really awsome. it went by quicker than i thought as i watched it. I love how the actress acted in this movie. She really was amazing with the double personality. I thought that her betraying of Night was really amazing. I could totally see the difference as she changes from Minato to Night. I would totally fall for Night if he was real, but i did get a little confused durring the part of Sho's P.O.V. Did he have another girlfriend or not, because Night was really jealous (not sure if this is the right word during this time) and insistant in Minato to break up with Sho.
