Be with You

General info
Original title: Ima, Ai Ni Yukimasu (いま、会いにゆきます)
Country: Japan
Year: 2004
IMDB Rating: 7.8 1872 votes
Plot: Mio Aio's death leaves husband Takumi and 6 year old son Yuji fending for themselves. Takumi occasionally suffers fainting spells, is disorganized, and fears that his health hindered Mio's happiness. Yuji overheard relatives speculate that his delivery compromised her health, and he blames himself for her death. Mio left him a picture book in which she departs for 'The Archive Star' but re-appears during the rainy season the following year, and he eagerly awaits her return.

Taking a walk in the forest outside their house, Takumi and Yuji find a woman sheltering from the rain and immediately accept her as Mio. She has no memory or sense of identity, but comes home to live with them anyway. She asks Taku how they met and fell in love, and he recounts a tale of years of missed chances starting in high school until she encouraged their marriage years later. As the rainy season nears its end, Yuji finds the 'time capsule' he hid with his mother before her death. Mio's diary is inside, and its version of the romance holds the answers to the mystery.

  • The movie is based on bestselling novel by writer Ichikawa Takuji.
  • Famous Okinawan alternative rock band Orange Range sang the theme song to this movie called Hana. It was the top selling single of 2005.
  • This film will be re-made in the United States in 2009. Stars who have currently signed on to the project include Jennifer Garner. The remake will be made by Garner's production company, Vandalia Films, and distributed by Warner Bros.

Be with You
LoveHKfilm, by Sanjuro source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/be_with_you.htm
«The film requires the viewer to suspend their disbelief to be sure, but not necessarily in terms of its far-out premise. Even so, Be With You is a terrific little film. ... Even though I didn't totally buy into their romance, even I found myself moved by this beautiful, emotionally-charged film.»
