Movie Review: Rainbow Song (2006) – Japanese Movie

rainbow song cover

Rainbow Song, despite the nonchalant title, is quite melodramatic. It’s a tragic love story with subtle but eliciting melancholic undertones. This romance-drama is a bittersweet story about friends and lovers; or should I say friends who don’t become lovers. Rainbow Song is the perfect film for anyone who can withstand a young love tearjerker.

More on the “love” — it’s one of those stories about falling in love, blind love, not knowing what’s in front of you, uncovering your true feelings and so on. Nothing is wrong with being a little “sappy”, as this film proves to be convincing and relatable. The strongest connection to be made, for male or female viewers, is from Juri Ueno‘s honest and natural acting ability which is definitely a force throughout.
