I love the movie and I love the soundtrack.

Nick and Mia meets [sic] for the first time. They know nothing about each other and seem to know everything about everyone else. But sometimes the less you know, the better…
I love Korean movies.
Kyoko (Jun Yoshinaga) is a confident, intelligent 16-year-old girl who is falling in love with the diffident, moody boy next door: Kaito (Nijiro Murakami). Kaito’s parents are divorced: his dad, a tattooist, lives in Tokyo and his mum works in a restaurant. Kyoko is dealing with something even more painful: her mother, a delicate and beautiful woman, is dying, perhaps of cancer, although the film is a little too otherworldly to acknowledge the exact illness, the exact medical care or the ugly, un-Zen physical toll it can take.
Set against this fraught situation is a shocking event: a dead body is washed up on the beach. Despite the film’s title, the water is far from still – there are tropical storms and the waves and currents are dangerous. The dead man turns out to have a connection with Kaito’s mother, and realising this forces him to re-evaluate his relationship with his parents and with Kyoko herself who cannot understand why he is so shy and reluctant to make love to her.
A beautiful movie about love, life and death.
I think I forget something. Some of my friends are major in director (making films) and they need a foreign actor.I think you are the best for the role!Are you willing to come and help them with the short film?
A: One day a foreigner received a postcard from his friend and told him to find some treasure in the old cinemas
… So he visited these cinemas and know many different stories but didn’t find any treasure, finally he found the really treasure was this trip
B: but you don’t tell me that I am that foreigner, right?
… I just play someone who says “hello” or something and that’s it
A: of cours ure the foreigner
… but I am a very, very, very bad actor
A: They’ll tell you how to act, take it easy
A: actually it will be on the TV
… which tv?
A: Shanghai Educational Channel
B: na halleluja
A wonderful movie with a great, touching finale, so happy and so sad at the same time.
Several years later I watched Mulholland Dr. and it was pretty much the same. The second time was better but I still read some interpretations. I’m really looking forward to rewatching it, quite contrary to Faust II which I’ll probably never touch again.
