Nice philosophy
20 December 2003 | by (JAPAN) – See all my reviews

Amida do dayori is a sweet movie. For me , who's living in Japan , i can tell you it can give you a different opinion about Japan , and about japanese culture .

It shows a lot of cultural events in Japan without explaining them. The pictures are so nice

The biggest point of watching that movie is the life philosophy it'll bring you . Positive vibrations are everywhere , in every country , You gotta watch out for these one !

I'm not gonna tell you about the plot and the acting as i'm pretty bad to explain myself clearly ( I'm french ) .

This movie is definitely one of the best for me , i don't often write a comment about a movie and rarely rent a movie twice in a week.

Take care my friends and may this movie guide our hearts in a way to love others and ourselves .
