"Mama, Gohan Mada?" Is a wonderful story about finding a daughter in her Japanese mother's cooking notebook that led to understanding her mother's determination to adapt through various challenges in her life when she raised her daughters. The movie is slow, but it does have some great lessons. Another point is the cinematography simplicity that comes with a very professional cast. A movie that is worth it.
