Spring Snow (春の雪 Haru no Yuki, 2005) is a film adaptation of Yukio Mishima's novel Spring Snow, directed by Isao Yukisada.

The cast includes Satoshi Tsumabuki as Kiyoaki Matsugae, Yūko Takeuchi as Satoko Ayakura, and Sosuke Takaoka as Shigekuni Honda.

The film was nominated for nine Japanese Academy Awards. "Be My Last", the main theme song for this film, was performed by Utada Hikaru. This was her 14th Japanese-language single release.


Spring Snow starts in 1912, as Emperor Taisho begins his short reign and Japan's upper classes are mimicking the tastes and manners of Europe's aristocrats. Among them are two children, Kiyoaki Matsugae (Satoshi Tsumabuki) and Satoko Ayakura (Yuko Takeuchi).

Even as a child, Satoko had romantic aspirations for her friendship with Kiyoaki. However, her father (Kenjiro Ishimaru), wary of the womanizing ways of Kiyoaki's father (Takaaki Enoki), fears for his daughter's involvement. He instructs her tutor, Tadeshina (Michiyo Ookusu), to ensure the girl's heart is not broken.

A decade later, as Kiyoaki is finishing high school, the beautiful and eligible Satoko is still stuck on her childhood sweetheart. To avoid her, Kiyoaki playfully considers setting her up with his uptight school friend, Shigekuni Honda (Sousuke Takaoka), and writes a lurid confession of frequent trips to Tokyo's entertainment quarter, then posts the letter to Satoko before Shigekuni can stop him. That evening, Kiyoaki has second thoughts, and requests the letter be destroyed, as his decadent adventures were fabrications.
