Kimi ga nozomu eien (2003 IMDb)

Categorization

Romantic melodrama.

Subject

Conflicting, selfish loves lead through disaster and despair to picking up the pieces, in three years.

Commentary

The title means both “The Eternity You Wish for” and “The Eternity Ahead”. Adept combination of stereotypes such as bouncy big-breasted heroines with absurd hair, a major mood twist, and even comic relief with serious drama. It actually works well enough. A greater weakness is a medical implausibility necessary to the plot. Don't miss the skits following the credits.
