Love Letter Reviews

Iwai Shunji brings so much beauty and charm to the screen but the romance is always odd and detached

Love Letter reminds me of many Mitsuru Adachi manga I loved as a kid. Without using background music, director Shunji Iwai relies simply on dialogue and the overall mood of the movie to make Love Letter memorable. What is behind this mood is a pure love story that will hit you similar to watching a giant story twist from another movie. There is no wonder Shunji Iwai is so revered in Japan, there is magic behind what seems like a bland and stationary movie.

Nice, simple story yet very touching. But in every Korean/Japanese romantic movies, they kill one of the characters...Good one, recommended.

This is one of the most touching films I have ever watched... A Beautifully shot film that heightens Sensitivity and induces Melancholy...

Iwai's "Love Letter" are slow, gentle, and absorbing tender love story with great score and atmospheric theme. What else do you need?

Love Letter is a drama about two women who have something in common. It turns out that the one has the same exact name as the other's dead fiance. They write letters back and forth and learn some odd things.
This movie was good, but it was a bit dull at times. I often felt myself getting a little bored as it seemed pretty slow moving. Otherwise, it was a great movie that I really enjoyed.

You don't see this movie talked about a lot in American circles. If you like Korean drama and Japanese anime, you'll love this movie. The acting, cinematography, editing, directing.....EVERYTHING was superb.
