A Near Perfect Moviegoing Experience
Weathering With You is a masterpiece of storytelling that does not deviate from the rules to give its audience a happy ending, even if the characters are allowed to have one. The confusing selfishness of its tracks is really pushed back in a finale that will let you contemplate its narrative well-being. And that will cause you to question your own position on love and what you would do to be with someone. It’s a difficult push to encourage when you’re not in the shoes of the protagonist. It literally makes everyone suffer just to be able to hold hands with a girl made of literal magic.
At the same time, we are supposed to buy this tragic love story and give of ourselves so that these two creatures can fly away towards sunset while the rest of us suffer from terrible weather and from a landscape that folds in on itself. How much you actually develop to care for these two characters themselves, you will have to weigh the end with both hands.

It is pure emotion, the feeling you feel when you look at that certain person who can brighten up your whole day. It will make you reflect on that special person in your own life, who brings the sun into the room every time she arrives. However, this girl literally brings the sun, giving off a constantly rainy sky for the right price. recently premiered in theaters on January 17 this past weekend.
