Love Like the Falling Petals Is Coming to Netflix in March 2022 in a Japanese Romantic-Drama


Love is a strong feeling of affection and concern for another person (of either gender) that develops due to close friendship or kinship. These types of emotions are usually accompanied by sexual attraction. 

People who fall in love and love them back the same way are lucky, and all they want is to be with each other for as long as forever is. People in love want to spend their entire lives together, build their careers together, achieve their goals together, grow old and pale together, and most importantly, hold on to each other for as long as eternity lasts.

But as it goes for everything, love can get painful when one partner reveals that they do not have much time to live.

Netflix is to bring one such love story on its platform this year. Love Like The Falling Petals is an upcoming Japanese movie with My Dearest, Like a Cherry Blossom as the literal title. This movie is based on a novel of the same name by Keisuke Uyama and is directed by Yoshihiro Fukagawa.

Love Like The Falling Petals has been co-written by Yoshida Tomoko and the director. And the production of the film is handled by Kei Haruna from Hakuhodo DY Music & Pictures and Takahiro Kawada from Toho Studios.

The movie follows the life of a boy and a girl who falls in love with each other. Later their love life starts getting torn into pieces as the couple discovers that the girl is suffering from a severe incurable disease, and she does not have much time left. We have compiled all the buzz around the release of Love Like The Falling Petals on Netflix.

Everything we know about Love Like the Falling Petals is right here.

The director focuses on the harsh reality of Japan’s rapidly aging society.

Love Like The Falling Petals mentions the fleeting nature of existence while also complaining about the financial and emotional burden that the elderly place on their families. Even by Japanese romance standards, the emasculation of adult courtship in the first half of Love Like the Falling Petals is extreme and infuriating. 

Netflix rated the movie as TV-14, which means that this movie is not suitable for children below fourteen. The content of this film is explicit and suicidal in some ways. There is the possibility that the film might contain scenes depicting sexual content. And there will be the use of strong language in the movie, so parents should stay cautious.
