Just finished the first ep of Bara no nai Hanaya and I have to say I'm mightily intrigued!!

To fess' up I had my doubts if Shingo could pull off a loving father, he is most of the time silly as a kid in most of his performances but here he pulls it off.
Nojima Shinji is the writer and having watched his doramas Pride and Nemureru Mori (Sleeping Forest) with Kimura Takuya, I have high hopes of Bara no nai Hanaya.

I loved the first few minutes up to the title. So much was conveyed in these few scenes and yet it left quite a mysterious air as well. On the outside we have a young man, loosing his wife while giving birth to their daughter. Easy enough ... but the way this was filmed it got me thinking. We never see his face up until the first real time scene.
The complete flash back is filmed without showing Eiji's (Shingo's) face. The long hair, the clothes - they all indicate that he is not a salaryman. He might not even be well educated, might be a school drop out, as he starts off doing only menial work.
His wife - if the woman who is on the tape IS his wife/SO - looks more like a school teacher, a nice ordinary looking woman and she doesn't look like she would normally associate with a thug like Eiji with long hair and bomber jacket.

So I'm asking myself if the girl is really his daughter? And is he only lonely/sad because of the death of his wife/girl-friend or does he harbour other secrets? More dark and dangerous?

And who is the rose? The dead wife? the little girl? Mio, the blind woman? Or something completely different?

Anyway, I loved the first ep. I loved the cinematography and the setting, the colours ... OMG the colours of Japan in autumn are glorious!!!

Takeuchi Yuko as Mio really makes you believe she is blind, she is really good and cute and has good chemistry with Shingo. I loved their scene in the rain with the umbrella. It was sooo romantic and adorable and yet I have the devastating feeling that this is not a romantic dorama per se.

So far Bara no nai Hanaya (Flowershop without a rose aka The Rose) is a very intriguing dorama.
