Day 2: The last movie you watched
I had to really wrack my brain for this one as time in lockdown does not exist and feels non-linear, so I’m forgetting a lot of what happened when as a result! Having checked my Twitter feed, I can see the last film I watched was I Want To Eat Your Pancreas, which I bought on blu-ray on its release back in March.
I’m hoping to write up a proper review of the film in due course (late again, what’s new?), so for now I’ll say I really loved it a lot. I had been warned that I was going to cry prior to watching, and oh boy, I sure did.
To loosely explain what the film is about without spoiling too much, it centres on the story of the male protagonist and a girl, Sakura, whom he meets by chance. Our protagonist finds Sakura’s diary and discovers she has terminal cancer. Sakura forbids him from telling anyone else, and enlists his help in living her life to the full before her prognosis is up. I’m sure from that description alone, you can see why I was prewarned that I’d cry!
