Strangely gripping. Beautiful, sensitive, wise and real. Thankyou. Great characterisation. Love the ‘nan’. Loved it! Slow, but strangely compelling. Good direction. A bit cheesy and long but enjoyable. Too much talking and eating. Bittersweet and had the capacity to draw one in. Beautifully directed. A touching tale of a family finding its way through life in a very Japanese way. A tender story of not becoming who you want to be. Good acting in real time. Slow moving but engrossing. Nice. What a wonderful granny! I enjoyed the insight into Japanese family life – loved the granny. Bit slow. Great to look in on another culture. Interesting to see different culture, but … It took a long time to get to the end! Dreaming – an empty excuse. Slow – not much of a plot.
