Slow but thoughtful
8 February 2001 | by (Hiroshima, Japan) – See all my reviews

The film is a slow, thought-provoking presentation of two characters: a young free-spirited young girl who loves to dance, and an older tradition-bound lady who desires to keep her family inheritance. The two begin to work on each other, but in the end the young girl is not as deeply influenced and takes leave of the older woman...and her money. A little too slow, but nevertheless a telling tale of human greed. Good acting and excellent use of cinematography.
