Ichi Ritoru no Namida [１リットルの涙] Definitely heart moving, mostly heart breaking. Sawajiri Erika's performance is impressive. It is definitely a must see. Based upon a real story.

Sawajiri Erika [沢尻エリカ] I only knew her as a Gravure Idol. Nice cute face, nice body, etc.
Well, since I watched "1 liter no namida" I have to revise my judgement : she proved she was also a very good actress, although she is still young. Her performance in this drama is really impressive !
Unfair [アンフェア] Rating: 2/10 (Watched) Quite interesting and full of surprises !

Ichi Ritoru no Namida [１リットルの涙] Heart moving, heart breaking : a must see ! [Rating: 10/10] The fact that this drama was based upon a real story makes this truly heart moving, even heart breaking. Honestyl, I couldn't help myself crying when watching episodes 2 & 3. I guess the rest of the series will be emotionally painful.
I also have to emphasize the fact that Sawajiri Erika's performance is exceptional. I would have never imagine she was able to perform like a true actress. Most of japanese teen actror/actress don't cry on screen (I guess they don't know how to cry on screen). But Sawajiri does. And she does pretty well : it definitely adds a true deep emotional dimension to her performance. I am very impressed, because I thought she was only one of those "teen idols" Japan produces each month, but I am glad to realize I was wrong and that she has a strong potential as an true actress.
