| This film has a special place in my heart
This is a film inspired by a true story about Hikaru Oshiro, based on the late Hikaru Nakasone, who reaches the hearts of a group of high schoolers who once thought their dreams of being of a professional rock-band was indefinitely impossible. But its way more than that. Its about human decency, respect, encouragement, and successfully lives up to the saying "never give up on your dreams". As soon as the end credits began rolling, my heart felt warm and I found myself deeply moved by Oshiro's philosophy. In my mind, Director Chikato Kumazawa truly created an instant classic that should be watched by every aspiring dreamer out there. Whether you dream of becoming a professional baseball player or an influential architect, this film is a must watch.

This film reminded me of why I love Japanese films in the first place.

— I attended the 3rd Okinawa International Film Festival back in 27 March 2011, where "A Yell from Heaven" was first screened publicly. Judging by the tears that were endlessly rolling down the audiences cheeks, I think this film touched all of our hearts, especially mine.
