Mitsuru Sasaki is an excellent chef, but he lost his passion for cooking. He can make the exact same dish by just tasting it once. He then receives a request to make a specific dish that the person will eat before they die. In order to make the dish, he tries to find the legendary recipe of Chef Naotaro Yamagata who went to Manchuria in the 1930's. Edit Translation

CHARACTERS/ACTING SKILLS:
(RATING: 7.5/10)
The actors and actresses somehow did well. You cannot really appreciate the acting because what really makes this movie wonderful was the story. There's is no such scene were you can say that his or her acting skills was superb because the scenes just require a moderate acting.

CINEMATOGRAPHY/EDITING/MUSIC:
(RATING: 9.5/10)
The film was perfectly done. Settings, costumes, camera ???? angles were spotless. I don't know why but I do really love stories which involves history or the past. Maybe I just recognise the idea that the past contains lessons and wonderful stories. For the music ????, well I was not really able to observe the music or the background music because I got carried away with the story. Honestly speaking this movie does not require a perfect music anymore because simply telling the story was enough.

STORYLINE/PLOT/TWIST:
(RATING: 20/10)
I am very generous if I know that the one who will receive it deserves it. Praises to the man who wrote this JAW DROPPING AND AMAZING story. This movie is just one of those movie who will let you appreciate many things in life for a span of not more than 2 hours. All you need to do is just to sit and watch it at your heart's ???? content. The way the story was narrated, how it was planned, the sequence of the story and the twist in the end were properly in place. This is the main reason why this movie was a wonderful one.

LESSONS:
1. There's a story behind everything. Whether that thing is a dish, a recipe, a person, or just an ordinary thing.
2. Sometimes what's really important to us are within our reach.
3. Seeing it and feeling it are two different fishes ????.

OVERALL:
I will give a rating of 9/10 for this movie. If asked if I am going to recommend this movie, well I've already recommended this to my friends and I will recommend it to you too. By the way the dishes in this movie are really mouth watery.

Definitely not the typical "Emotionless chef rediscovers the spirit of cooking" story.

I didn't expect it to touch my heart as much as it did, the premise was a very familiar one. A cold, emotionless, perfectionist chef, sent on a culinary mission, finds the true meaning of cooking along the way.
Well at least that's how I predicted it to go.
By the midpoint, there was this almost-breaking the 4th dimension moment where our chef went, "So I'm supposed to be moved and realise food must be cooked with love? What bs!" And I realised that no, this is not going to be just another typical take on the trope.
In the end it turned out to be a realistic, heartfelt discussion about how many people care about you in the world, even the people you'd think are most unimportaht and unrelated to you, and at the moment you think you are most alone in the world, how they would all come together to help you and you don't even know it. When you realise it you might even be too late.
It was a story about love transcending generations, through family and not-family, and I was so moved.
