The only recent film that I like was Takeshi Kitano's "Kikuchiyo". Today I actually rode my bike to a few of the locations where the movie was filmed. You can probably find "Kikuchiyo" at Blockbuster in America (I did), it's worth renting.

Another fun movie is called "Enlightenment Guaranteed". It's a German production which was filmed in Japan. It's the story of 2 middle-age brothers from Germany who get lost in Tokyo, and it's quite funny. This one can also be found at Blockbuster.

I would have to say 'Yuuki' is the best I've seen. Ah wonderful movie.

I really loved 'Moon Child' and 'Koizora'. both amazing movies as well.

I just noticed these are all sad movies... haha

mine Is Hana Yori Dango Final I loved how they end it with a picture of them after the wedding and then it turns into the manga version of it.
