My Darlin is a foreigner


My Darling is a Foreigner (Darin wa Gaikokujin) is a manga series and it was written by Saori Oguri. The manga series were so popular that bilingual versions have also been produced. The story is based on the writer’s real life. Her boyfriend, Tony Laszio, is American who lives in Tokyo. The film was also produced in 2010 and I am planning to get a DVD to see that movie. 🙂 I can’t give an official review since I haven’t seen the movie or read the manga series before.

I am sharing the trailer of this movie posted on youtube.
