Beautiful Life, a japanese dorama movie released in 2000. Kind of old actually, but I just got it from my friend like a month a go. Been in my hard disk for almost a month, I never had a chance to watch it, until recently. And it took me 2 days to watch all eleven episodes.
One word, “sugoi (すごい)”, what a great romantic movie.
It was indeed beautiful as the title said. As love knows no boundaries, it can come anytime and change the way you live your life, even though it’s for a short time.
Beautiful life, a beautiful love story of Shuji, an upcoming hairstylist and handicapped librarian Kyoko.
Besides the story, there is one more thing that makes me really like this movie. One particular song, that gives you feeling of being calm and a little bit of loneliness. The song that can be heard clearly in the last episode, when Shuji cut that little girl hair in his own salon. Or when they (Shuji and Kyoko) were visiting lake to saw mount Fuji (epsd 9).
Took me a lot of efforts searching for that song. From listening all Beautiful Life OSTs in 4shared to reading users comment in some Beautiful Life dorama forum, but, no luck. Until finally I found this video scene of episode 9 in youtube:
Finally I got it 🙂 .. On Silver Wings by Steve Spiro and Paul Wickens.
