tearjerking "I love you mom." movie
25 October 2001 | by (japan) – See all my reviews

Disturbing child abuse memories come back on a quest for Taiwanese father's grave. Mieko Harada excels both as the oppressive mother and the repressed grown-up daughter in search for her father's grave in Taiwan. The movie was pretty intense, but I didn't expect that a single line towards the end of the movie would make me cry for that long. This was Hideyuki Hirayama's break-out movie, which won him a bunch of Japanese Academy Awards although I hadn't heard of the movie till Award night. I really like this movie.
