This film was such a pleasant surprise, I am so glad that I decided to give it a shot, it's been a while since I have been this touched, amazed, and inspired by a film.. I was hooked with the story from beginning to end and I loved the main characters so much, with Ryosuke Kamiki and Kasumi Arimura's excellently executed roles in Shin and Aoi, I find the writing nothing short of brilliant. That's saying a lot because it's rare for me to ever be so invested with film characters. It was a story well told and thankfully I didn't find any controversial moments that would have ruined the film for me. Everyone involved with this movie from the actors to the staff, all executed their respective roles perfectly.. I absolutely loved the soundtrack as well, it added such a beautiful touch and blended well with the scenes to convey the best emotional impact for the moment. The ending wrapped it all up perfectly, a solid conclusion to a beautiful story. This is a film that'll stay with me for a while, I think it will always be one of my top all time favorites from here on out. Go watch Fortuna's Eye :).

Shinichiro is lonely for two reasons. He lost his family in an accident when he was younger. He also has an unusual and morbid ability to see through and beyond the corporal bodies of those who are about to die. His life looks to be on the upswing when he meets the cute Aoi at a shop one day. They are well on the way to happiness together when the man begins seeing through the woman.

Amazing, touching movie
Every now and then, a movie comes from nowhere and completely blows you away, this is such a movie.
Japanese, the subtitles were not even noticeable after a while, this is a well thought out, charming story which is neatly tied together and for me, had a 'Sixth Sense' moment of realisation which blew me away.
The two leads are a joy, full of energy and utterly committed to their roles, both good looking, it just adds to the joy of the movie.
Maybe it was fate that a stumbled across this movie and absent-mindedly pressed play, it is an absolute delight.
" Fortuna's Eye " was, surprisingly, good.
They presented the whole story brilliantly, with the start being all mysterious and freaky and, in the end, everything came together and they explained the fantasy element and the other character's views. The fantasy element, moreover, was handled pretty well and the CGI were well made. The performances were good too. Finally, the ending was unexpected and interesting. However, I did found the final conclusion didn't do justice to the leading lady's characters and, even though they gave us a conclusion, that ending was just a bit frustrating.
So, overall, seven out of ten.
