1 Litre of Tears Episodes
It's the best movie ever so heart touching, so emotional, i'll give to this movie 1 millions of stars, and the title is wrong, it's should have been million liters of tears. The story is so inspiring, I wish if i could find the diary book in my country. I recommend this movie to every body but not for people with a weak heart like me T.T, i cried in every single episode( my god T.T ) It's so amazing how we can see the pain of the ones how are ill,and understand them, and how the people around can help them and give them support and joy.
yes it is the best movie :)
