Cute overload
6 May 2009 | by (http://sitenoise-atthemovies.blogspot.com/) – See all my reviews

This film is a cute cupcake with cute-sad frosting and it's not too gooey at all, nothing will stick to your fingers. Five year-old Ei Morisako practically steals the adorableness award from Kyôko Fukada, the Angel. Hiromi Nagasaku looks about twenty-one in this film. Everybody's attractive, it's not stupid, the Angel loves to drink gin and lime, and there's a cat lady! This movie really packs a feel good punch without being cheap. It plays like a film, not a TV drama. There's interesting photography and the production values are all good around. There are four different character threads involving lonely hearts who are chaperoned by the Angel and they're all good. Gosh ... everybody, I love you, man.
