Beautiful tale of childhood
2 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film last night at the Weekly Japanese Cinema screenings held at the Chifley Towers in Sydney, held by The Japan Foundation. It is a film about a boy who lives with his nanny while his mother is sick. His life is happy, but he has to return home, and here is where the film becomes very moving and touching. Sentimental, yes, but not sickly or forcedly. It does drag out towards the end, but the ending itself was quite moving, and although my friend fell asleep occasionally during the film (it was an evening showing), he still liked it. Very much like an Ozu film, and interesting the filmmaker seems to have made few films (if you go by the IMDb).
