It didn't feel special, and painfully predictable. I might have watched way too many movies to see how this plot would unfold. Regardless, it's always a pleasure seeing Juri Ueno on screen. Remember Nodame Cantabile? She was perfect! There's more to her than her deceivingly fragile look. Sadly, this film didn't bring out her best. Too bad, even with the cat around, it wasn't that special.
