Introduction
Derived from a novel written by Takuji Ichikawa—who also wrote the novel Be with you (that later became a hit movie), his latest novel to be adapted into a film, Heavenly Forest, is yet another tragic tale that deals with loss. Ichikawas approach to these types of topics are what make his novels so memorable; his ability to take generic plot devices and make them his own, through his subtle touches and creative set-ups, are what make his novels so poignant and thought-provoking. No doubt his perspective outlook on these subjects is translated quite well onto celluloid.

Heavenly Forest tells the story of love triangle between 3 university students. The first student, who is also the main protagonist, is Makoto Segawa (Hiroshi Tamaki). He is a shy and timid young man who has an appreciation for photography. On his way to his first day in school, he runs across another student, Shizuru Satonaka (Aoi Miyazaki). After a strange exchange that finds them walking to school together, they develop a friendship. As their relationship continues to grow, another student, Miyuki Toyama (Meisa Kuroki) comes into the picturewhich leads to the inevitable dispute for Makotos attention.

The look of the film is beautiful. Director Takehiko Shinjo ecompasses the film with gorgeous backdrops and alluring lighting that are very easy on the eyes. Perhaps the aptly title of the film fits the cinematography perfectly. As with Be with you (which directed by another director), director Shinjos handles Ichikawas material with precision and faithfully recreates the visually descriptive nature of the novel.
