She has never attended school and is incapable of doing a lot of things most teenagers take for granted. She falls in love with a boy named Kouji that doesn’t even know she exist. He often sits at a bus stop in the mornings, that is visible from Kaoru’s window. One day Kaoru see’s Kouji walking down a street at night and she gathers the courage to finally talk to him. Actually, she tackles him from behind and then blurts out her name, her hobbies, favorite fruit, favorite muscian, and the fact that she doesn’t have a boyfriend.

Featured reviews for

Midnight Sun
Lunapark6, by luna6 source: http://lunapark6.com/a-song-to-the-sun-midnight-sun-taiyo-no-uta.html
«A Song To The Sun is a sweet little film, that surprisingly doesn’t pack the excessive melodrama one would expect from a film centered around a girl with a debilitating disease. The film seems made particularly for teenage folks and mainstream cinema goers, so stylistically you can expect a film similar to Kentaro Otani’s Nana.»
A Nutshell Review, by Stefan S source: http://anutshellreview.blogspot.com/2006/12/midnight-sun-taiyo-no-uta.html
«Clocking at two hours, the initial pacing is a bit slow when establishing characters and premise, but once that's done, the movie's a breeze. It's an excellent date movie, so guys, take your lady love to this movie, and of course, Yui is opportunity for you to ogle.»
LoveHKfilm, by Sanjuro source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/midnight_sun.htm
«Although Midnight Sun dims midway through for a bit, the film's understated approach, likeable characters, and undeniably rousing finale make it a memorable, if somewhat rushed endeavor.»
BAMboozled.org, by HORACE source: http://www.bamboozled.org/article/556/taiyou_no_uta
«For general audiences, Taiyou no Uta is great to watch with family or even better, a loved one. Seeing Koji do all he can to fulfill Kaoru's dream will get any couple aroused and heart-warmed. However, for all YUI fans, this spectacular movie contains most of YUI's hottest songs.»
