|Hoshi no kinka 1 [星の金貨]|
One of the most meaningful movies I've ever seen [Rating: 10/10]
Noriko Sakai's acting brought me from wonder to wonder!!!
At the beginning, I like Shuichi's character a lot: he's just the opposite of Takumi, an exemplar to any doctor! But as soon as he got amnesia, he started acting ridiculously leading to tragedy Not totally his fault, though: b/c this story also shows me how scary it was when women became jealous =))
Takumi Nagai : At the beginning, he made me go: I wish I were ur boss so I could fire u : you didn't deserve to wear the white coat!! I couldn't wait to see him die (lol) but, just a second thought (for having seen many evil-turn-good characters before), I kept a neutral view, thinking: well, IF he ever overcame his flaws, then he'd definitely become a memorable character! My thought was right: Thanks to Aya, Takumi has changed from being rebellious to a sensible young man who knows how to love, and to be loved. To Takumi, Aya is an angel who's always there to emphathize and encourage him to overcome many painful moments and to realize his true self. Takenouchi Yutaka's acting was very compelling and interesting to watch - his performance touched a lot of viewers, so he was awarded Golden Arrow Hoso Shinjin-sho !
Part II : worst sequel of all times with characters doing many, many absurd things. Really. Part 1 successfully established Aya's image as a "lucky star" that fell upon everyone she's met, but Part 2 made it look like she brought misfortune to everyone (quite a contrast)! Only the 1st part is enough, no need for Part II. Like part 2 of many other movies, this shamed part 1!!!
