Resolute Film Commemorating Life

This film is a commemorative NHK piece with a fairly decent feel-good factor. Following Kiyoshi as his thanks the people who helped him return to Paradiso, his italian-western restaurant previously ravaged by the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami on March 11, 2011.

You'll notice quaint details that lead to a twist near the end, but its nothing too shocking or ground-breaking. Rather it's pleasant because it shows how much Kiyoshi has matured and grown as an individual in his recovery process. You'll notice his transition from being a victim of disaster to being a self-made chef, wanting to fill the hearts and stomachs of the people who set foot in his restaurant.

This movie's purpose was likely for the reason of reminiscing on a cataclysmic day with a tinge of positivity, with its main message to live out life due to the people who lost their life that unfortunate day. To do the things one enjoys and to make up for the fun the deceased no longer had a chance to seize, because as long as we're alive, life is still enjoyable as this movie is.

Decent film with decent plot and cast as a respectful commemoration of a disaster turned into opportunity.
