Hotel Hibiscus is a gentle, slow moving film, reminiscent of tonari no totoro (minus the magic) in that nothing really happens. set in okinawa, the film portrays the slower pace of Japanese life concentrating on the main protanganist - the youngest daughter and the occurrences in her everyday life. A very funny, relaxing film to watch, there are many okinawa lifestyle in jokes as well as a fantastic rooftop hibiscus ladies song which makes me laugh every time i watch! a must see for all fans of ghibli or similar. The main character was apparently picked from a competition but is an outstanding actress, along with the rest of the cast who perfectly fit their roles. A superb film that invites the viewer in and keeps them there, in the long hot summer days in Okinawa - buy it!
