Featured reviews for

Rainbow Song
LoveHKfilm, Kevin Ma source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/rainbow_song.htm
«A bittersweet romance drama co-written and produced by Shunji Iwai features both the best and the worst of the director's traits. Thankfully, the good tends to outweigh the bad, thanks to star Juri Ueno's performance.»
Swifty Writing, by Edmund Yeo source: http://swiftywriting.blogspot.com/2007/11/swifty-reviews-rainbow-song.html
«It's essentially a Jun-Ai (pure, innocent love, it's a new genre) film, and if done by lesser filmmakers, this would have been manipulative, weepy and contrived... But in this film, Shunji Iwai's influence are there, in terms of mood and aesthetics. Its somewhat humorous (but not forced and contrived), it's emotional but often understated and not melodramatic, and the filmmakers' unconventional use of handheld shots and lighting, along with the beautiful piano soundtrack...»
Variety, RUSSELL EDWARDS source: http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117931916.html?categoryid=31&cs=1
«Love endures, but remains elusive, in "Rainbow Song," a sad but sweet Japanese meller about friends who never became lovers. A vehicle for Nipponese tube and movie heartthrob Hayato Ichihara, pic is a note-perfect lament for opportunities missed and will touch in equal measure young hearts inside and outside the land of the Rising Sun.»
iSUGOI, by M. Douglas source: http://www.isugoi.com/reviews/film-reviews/167-rainbow-song-review.html
«"Rainbow Song" is a film that I thoroughly enjoyed. It’s a carefully crafted experience that will please fans of Juri Ueno, Hayato Ichihara, and Yu Aoi, who all give great performances. It doesn’t deliver the generic love story all so often witnessed in other films of the same nature, and strives to offer the viewer something entirely different.»
