It's amusing!, 2 July 2013
Author: betoexko from Japan

This story is about an old woman one day. Some problem happens around her. She gets tired of everything. Can she come out of a bad day?

I like this story very much because I can't predict the story to the very end. I thought this story's ending was so funny. I like the old woman's behavior and character so much because her behavior one by one made me delight and I did not lose interest in her character. I thought that when she gets an idea into her head she really clings to it and she was so pitiful because everything was not going well. I thought a black and white movie was a tasteful movie and it excited my curiosity.

I think this movie's conclusion is a happy and funny ending because she smiled at the end and this story's ending was simple unexpectedly. This movie is short, so you can watch for a few minutes. This movie is worth watching. So I recommend it to you.
