I loved this movie. I didn't know anything about it before I started watching it, but decided to give it a go, since I've seen some really good Japanese movies lately, and must admit they can do it really well in Hong Kong too. I am usually not a big fan of action movies, but for me, this was pure magic. I loved the story, the wonderful music and the actors (Sky is lovely). They mixed the racing scenes very well with a really nice story. At times very sad and emotional. Easy to get familiar with the characters. Very well acted.It reminded me _a little bit_ of "West Side Story", and also some elements from "Lola Rennt". Wonderful. I would recommend everyone to see this.
