When I sat down to watch the Shibasaki Kou movie Shokudo Katatsumuri (Rinco's Restaurant), the story of a chef who slowly takes the time to prepare the perfect meal for only one select customer a day, I figured it would be a bit eclectic in nature, but I still wasn’t been prepared for how all-out “arty-farty” it was!

First off, It wasn’t quite that she “ took the time to create a perfect dish” for each client, more precisely, if you eat at her restaurant, amazingly, your GRANDEST WISHES COME TRUE! Whoa. A bit more fanciful than I was prepared for, but still somewhat on ground level, at least so far...I thought to myself, "OK, Um... So, this is like a fairy tale, then?" It certainly was SURREAL enough!

As the show progressed, however, the movie seemed to get more and MORE quirky, with zany singalong narration and animated vegetable picking (and of course, all those wish-granting meals) til it finally built up crazier and crazier til I had to stop and pull out a majestic WTF?!

AHAHAHA, Oh well, ya can't say that this movie wasn't entertaining, 'cause it was THAT, FOR SURE!!!

I'm a big fan of delightfully quirky Asian films, and this one really fits the bill. The story is sweet, funny, heartwarming, and thoughtful. The characters are charming and sometimes a little odd. The cinematography and film score are beautiful and imaginative. I found myself longing to experience Rinco's restaurant myself.
