Poignant

This is the most poignant movie that we have watched in awhile. Funny too! The family interaction was so incredibly... Japanese! I like the way it portrays what finally motivates a man to work. We know so many kids like Tetsuo - wish they would find someone who needs them. I think my favorite part was his Dad telling him he'd better never betray her. Poignant story, poignant music and a very poignant ending.

Our whole family gives it a 10.
