Storyline

The film tells the story of a small community on a small island in Okinawa, Japan. Especially it focusses on the story of a grandma named Nabbie, but although it's her story told in the film's centre there are some young people, the grand-daughter of Nabbie and a young Japanese who just came to visit the little island. As the film evolves with the more or less ordinary events of the little island's inhabitant's more or less ordinary life, the story behind Nabbie's life gets more and more obvious. It's a surprise to most everyone involved in one or the other way. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Funny and cute
24 September 2003 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this one, it gave me a good mood for the rest of the day! Nabbie's love is a cute story with a lot of Japanese music (+ some Irish) and naïve humour. And let's not forget the beautiful bougainvillea flowers that seem to flourish like everlasting love.

Nanoko (Naomi Nishida) was my favourite character, she was so lively and honest. Nanoko's grandfather, Keitatsu (Seijin Noborikawa) gave me most of the laughs.. I gave this movie 8/10.
