Set in 1958 Tokyo. Norifumi Suzuki owns a small auto body shop named “Suzuki Auto”, where he works and lives with his loving family. One day, he comes back home with a new employee, Mutsuko Hoshino, who moves in with the Suzuki family. However, Mutsuko had expected that Suzuki Auto would be a big company so she is disappointed to see how small the shop is. Meanwhile, Ryunosuke Chagawa lives alone across the street from Suzuki Auto. Chagawa is a writer of pulp fiction stories who runs a candy shop to make ends meet. He is asked by Hiromi Ishizaki, the woman whom he secretly loves, to look after a boy called Junnosuke who has no place to go. Chagawa doesn’t want to live with Junnosuke, but he agrees to do so for Hiromi. After a while, the two new residents become part of the close-knit community of Third Street, but the situation changes when Junnosuke’s wealthy father Yasunari Kawabuchi shows up to take his son away from Chagawa, and Hiromi suddenly disappears.

This is the second installment to the Always: Sunset on Third Street. Overall I think it was great sequel because it kept everything we loved in the first movie and further developed each character's story line. The cinematography was beautiful, the whole cast is amazing, and I would definitely give this movie a solid thumbs up.

More of what made the first one so damn special

Always Sunset on Third Street 2 offers more of what made the first one so damn wholesome, at times much more bittersweet, it retains the goodwill and warmth of its predecessor. Still just as unabashedly nostalgic and touching, Always 2 is exceptionally self-indulgent, very saccharine and perhaps a bit overlong, but it's also an excellent example of an emotionally satisfying drama with likeable characters and a wonderful sense of place and time. One that doesn't fail to get the tears welling, making for a feel-good film with loads of laughs. Extremely refreshing and just the tonic in these austere and pessimistic times. It shines bright. Although you just know every Godzilla fan has seen the opening 2-minutes of this and then nothing further, a huge injustice if there ever was one. However, you can certainly see why Yamazaki was chosen to helm the latest outing for the Big G with this sequence... I can't wait.
