Gôsuto - Japanese Remake of Ghost

Star emoticonStar emoticonStar emoticonStar emoticon

This 2010 movie is a Japanese remake of the Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore movie, Ghost. Although the husband is Korean played by a Korean actor, the entire movie is in Japanese with English subtitles.

I like this version more than the original:
>the roles are reversed (the wife dies instead of the husband)
>the ending is a bit different but better, IMHO
>the always annoying and unfunny Whoopi Goldberg isn't in the movie

It's no longer streaming on Netflix and Amazon does not stream it either. The DVD is available; look for Ghost In Love or Ghost: In Your Arms Again. Or you can watch it here via YouTube. Enjoy.
