10 Great Japanese Movies With No Blood!

Crying Out Love in the Center of the World (2004)

It might have happened to you. You met a girl in your live and you just new it was the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. If it did not happened to you. Then you can watch this movie and see how it really looks like when someone dedicates their life to another person.

My opinion: I was actually crying while watching this movie.


 Dear Friends (2007)

Illness and diseases are part of our lives. Some of the young people really like to enjoy their lives by  going clubbing and having fun with friends. When illness find you, is there going to your club mates around for you? Will they swap the bars to a hospital visits? Hmm... This movie can give you the answer.

My opinion: It is good to know who is your real friend.


Hanamizuki (2010)

This movie is a bit similar to the first one on this list. Love for the first sight and so on.
Very interesting story that most of that could be a real example of people about how the true love should look like.

My opinion: Life gives us surprises.


Tokyo Sonata (2008)

Story of a family living in Tokyo. Classic example of average family living in the big Japanese city. But, What happen if something goes wrong? Maybe you loose a job. What then?

My opinion: I have watched this movie many times. It is fun and seriousness in one.


Memories of Tomorrow (2006)

Imagine you are boss of a big company and one day you walk in to your office and you do not remember the names of your colleagues. Well, you just need to write them down on a piece of paper.

My opinion: People should be grateful when someone good is looking after them. But, What happens if you do not know what you should be grateful for?


One Million Yen Girl (2008)

Very nice concept of the movie. A girl who decides to leave home and go her own way to find a nice future. Do not make too long stops, do not get engaged in peoples lives too much. Just save up 1 000 000 yen and leave.

My opinion: Trust yourself and yourself only.


Petaru dansu (2013)

This great film is very specific. If you come to a famous director with the script for this movie. He would probably have a very good laugh. But, in a negative way. There is actually nothing really dramatic happening in this movie. But, one shall say, it is in the air.

My opinion: WOW... I love this movie. Connection of these four great Japanese actresses was just a great idea.


Rebirth (2011)

Inspired by true story. Sometimes if we could take a time back we would not know if we really want to. Sometimes it hurts forgetting a past.

My opinion: I think about my childhood every day.


Swallowtail Butterfly (1996)

Great movie if you like post apocalyptic films. Yen Town(name of the city) is a city of near future after yen become the most valuable currency in the world. Story of a young girl growing up in such reality.

My opinion: I just hope this will never happen.


 The Great Passage (2013)

Great Passage. I have mentioned this movie in my previous posts. It is set in Tokyo, in a dictionary department and it is about making dictionary. Nothing special. But you can really learn about something from it. Passion, stamina and dedication for work.

My opinion: Very relaxing movie.



The Taste of Tea (2004) 

Well, I do not really know what to think about this movie. 
I just know I have watched it about five times and love it. 

Find your yourself :)


Enjoy watching!
