Beautiful and outstanding.
16 January 2006 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

The movie was very well made, in both chronological and artistic means. Kawase shoots the movie with her passion and beautiful essence, but the occasional personal pathos doesn't feel heavy at all. Instead it feels light and touching. Her framing and camera moving is so unique. Her films have so strong and powerful emotion. Understanding the inner feelings of adopted person, this movie is deeply touching and honest. How hard it must have been to create such self-portrait for Kawase. You could feel the pain of the director herself. Despite very honest description, all characters are portrayed in honest and beautiful meaning. If someone would sometimes make movie about me, I would want it to be Naomi Kawase. Grandmothers are afteral, the best in this world.
