Japanese Movie Recommendation: Orange — a beautiful story about friendship

In this lifetime, we can easily meet someone and make friends as many as we want, but the truth is, there are only a few people who we can trust and labeled as true friends.

These true friends are the ones who heartily accept every inch of our personality. Friends who understand and love us, and also those who will guide and correct us from our wrongdoings.

However, if you are looking for this friendship kind of a movie, Orange is a highly-recommended Japanese film that will certainly give you the same vibe!

Orange starring Kento Yamazaki, Tao Tsuchiya, Ryo Ryusei, Hirona Yamazaki, Kurumi Shimizu, and Dori Sakurada tells a beautiful and inspiring story of six individuals who value the true meaning of friendship.

The movie focuses on Naho played by Tao Tsuchiya who receives a letter from her future self 10 years from now.

The letter is an account of the things her future self had experienced and regretted the most towards her friend Kakeru (Kento Yamazaki).

All I can say is wow. The story is well-written and the cinematography is perfectly displayed that will give you a roller coaster ride of emotions. You definitely shouldn’t miss this amazing masterpiece!

It purely tackles about love and happiness towards other people who are not related to you by blood. That other people support and love you unconditionally not in an intimate way but in a friendly way.

Friends are forever. If you already have them in your life, you are lucky and you should cherish every moment with them.

However, if you are surrounded by fake friends, learn to let go of the toxicity. You need friends whom you can feel the true essence of friendship.
