Sincere and warm piece of work from veteran Director Somai Shinji
2 June 2001 | by (singapore) – See all my reviews

A beautiful story on the age-old theme of love and hope, set against a background of two contrasting Japans, city Tokyo and countryside Hokkaido.

The ending while predictable, is movingly conveyed by its leading actors with much warmth, sincerity and truth of the moment. Koizumi Kyoko shines in her first film role and Asano Tadanobu is perfect as the down-and-out Sawaki Kenji who finds his salvation in the struggling Yuriko.
