A man called "Master" begins his day as others end theirs, opening his small izakaya from midnight until seven in the morning. The hole-in-the-wall restaurant is a simmering pot where the eclectic characters of nocturnal Tokyo gather to stew over their stories. The film follows the stories of three ordinary individuals with a lot on their plates. As these individuals pore over their worries, Master serves up homely delights and timely life advice. And as other customers begin to console one another, a family is born. (Source: Japanese Film Festival) Edit Translation

Once again Kobayashi Kaoru does not disappoint; he's become one of my most favorite actors because of two series. I've quickly fallen in love with this man and his talents, not to mention his voice and the way he carries himself from one character and one story to the next. This movie is filled with a cast of stars and everyone makes each story something like a miracle.

Each story is filmed as if it were a present to the viewers. There's a lesson to learn within each episode, and you lose yourself within the moments of just watching and falling in love with each character and their story.

New folks visit the Master of Food Therapy

Have recently realized that Master is a Food Therapist. In every Midnight Diner episode whether it is the series or the movies, there are people who come to his diner for "comfort food". As he feeds them and as they taste his wonderful food, they relax in the atmosphere and camaraderie. Each guest has a back story, and the regulars all know each other. This movie focuses on 3 new diners, and thus is able to get more in depth views of their lives because more time is devoted to each diner.

The 3 stories are centered around problems women face.
1. Yakiniku Set - A female editor cosplays as a widow to escape the sexism that causes stress in her career as an editor. As someone who has experienced this daily, I could 100% relate to her frustrations at being unable to challenge, complain or change the status quo.
2. Grilled Udon - A widow who runs the family soba noodle shop worries her son is "useless" at taking care of himself or the family business. Unknown to her, the son is dating a much older woman, a woman the widow considers a "good catch" and friend.
3. Tonjiru Set Meal - An elderly Yukiko ends up at the Diner after being scammed. Patrons of Master's diner try to help her, and Michiru (from the first Midnight Diner movie) takes the woman in as she resembles her grandmother. However, the woman has some secrets from her past.

In each case, Master comforts them with food, and just a few, sparse sentences, full of meaning. Upon reflecting on what Master has said, various characters do take action and that's what makes Midnight Diner a magical show for how it depicts then resolves issues. Here is hoping for more!
