slaepwerigne's rating of the film Blue Spring

in the last two nights i've watched two films based on two of my all-time favourite manga - sono's himizu and toyoda's blue spring. i figured this would be near impossible to adapt, and although it took some chopping and changing, he came out with something just as evocative, and something that hits really close to home for people who came from this kind of no hope background, like i did.
