I liked it. A lot.
Thinking back to a dramatic crescendo or two, True Tears does often twist like a slightly cliché, soapy love story, but this existential willingness to look beyond superficial emotion, to find a sad, warm reason behind all the pain, lies and deceit of normal people, rapidly elevates its sense of poignancy and importance. This is a thoughtful, serious and compelling drama, and much better than expected.
I knew that Owen was positive about True Tears. But trading watchings? SRS BSNS.
