one of very few live actions that's able to stand on the same plattform with the manga. the mood is indeed quite different than the manga itself but still strongly preserves asano's style of storytelling which gives the audience a whole new feeling.for those who haven't read the book its pretty okay to watch this first bcs everything will come as a pleasant surprise. scoring was perfect and aoi's acting was TOP NOTCH
since I really love the comic, watching the movie doesn't give me the same feeling like reading it. not necessarily bad, just slower and something's lost. the casts are way too good looking, I mean Meiko should be a very ordinary girl and so is Taneda boy. but it's okay I like looking at them anyway. the reason why I still give this 2 stars is because the Solanin song is good! along with its other soundtracks by ENT.
