A bit of a soapie...
4 July 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film was interesting, but mainly because it shows an aspect of modern Japanese life which westerners don't often get to see. If I was not interested in listening to the Japanese language and learning a little more about contemporary Japanese lifestyle, I probably would not have watched this film to the end. It was a bit of a soapie.

On the other hand, there were several moments where I felt more emotionly involved with the family which made the film more worthwhile.

On the whole, the movie was worth watching and I give it a 6/10.
