Cast & Credits
The story is scattered throughout this movie, slowly building one small telling structure. The selling point for me was the atmosphere - the set dressing. I felt like I was part of that world. The vibrant colours, the attention to detail, the changing seasons - everything screamed "Japan" to me. In my opinion, this movie is for two types of people: 1. Maeda Atsuko fans and 2. patient aesthetic loving people with penchant for obscure movies... (I am both, so I enjoyed it thoroughly)..
To be candid, you'll see about half an hour of people eating. So if you like observing mastication, please, dig in.
