Movie Review from an Amazon Worker Adds Joy to Son’s Surprise Birthday Gift to His Dad

“Amazon worker left a movie review with my order.”

In pure delight, Deshende posted a picture of the Blu-Ray DVD Combo Pack on Reddit’s r/mildlyinteresting forum, along with a handwritten note from an Amazon worker that says, “Movie was good. I cried.”

It was a very pleasant surprise for a son who meant to give the DVD movie to his father.


“I purchased the movie on a whim for my dad. He will often comment on movies he enjoys that are thought-provoking and well-written,” Deshende told Newsweek. “He’s not an anime fan, but I was taking a gamble that he’d like it, so purchased it for him as a gift for his upcoming birthday.”

The post now has more than 46,000 votes, with commenters likewise praising the movie Your Name, which has won multiple awards and is now considered one of the greatest anime films of all time. Among its prestigious recognitions are the Arigato Award from the 29th Tokyo International Film Festival, Best Animation from the 2016 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards, and Best Animated Film from the 71st Mainichi Film Awards.

SolarFlora commented, “Just watched the movie again for a second time. The story is wonderful, but I would also want to point out that it is also visually a treat.”

Rebel_bass also remarked, “The music is fantastic as well.”

Memorable words from Ghost_06: “My wife used a violin cover of the song as she walked down the aisle during our wedding. Now I’ve got that memory associated with it, so I’m bound to cry when I hear this song.”


Meanwhile, say592 shared this unforgettable experience of watching the movie: “I have a wonderful memory associated with that movie. My wife had come with me to a work conference about a 4-hour drive from our home. The day before we are set to drive back home, she points out that this movie she wants to see isn’t playing at our local theater, but it’s playing at a theater not far off of our route home. It’s an independent theater off the highway in an area we have never stopped. We had no clue what to expect. It turned out to be a very well-kept theater! Everything there was perfect, and since it was the middle of the afternoon on a weekday, it was mostly empty. We enjoyed the movie, definitely cried, then we went on our way. I don’t know the name of the theater, I don’t know the town it was in, but I have a really fond memory of it.”
