I gave it a 9 out of 10 because nothing is perfect. However, I loved this movie! I just watched it again today for like the 900th time. I have always been one to love Asian people, especially Chinese and Japanese. I even had Japanese roommates in college, and one of them taught me a few things in Japanese, like how to write my name and such. Anyway, back to the movie...these characters are very endearing to watch. They give me courage to face my own troubles now. Being an adult and living on my own, I can appreciate the hardships someone like Auntie Hata would have gone through, raising two boys on her own. Also, having recently gone through a break-up (the pain of that is still fresh), I can only imagine what it must be like to lose my husband! I was watching the movie and, especially at the parts where Auntie Hata grasps her head in frustration/worry, I felt tense with her, because I can empathize! All in all, a must see!
