colorful quirky romantic comedy about an ugly duckling woman who wonders thru Nagasaki thinking of Lisbon - filled with manga inspired dreams of princes and princesses and romance - and yearning for the attractive man who once said something encouraging to her
well acted - especially by Miki Nakatani as the duckling
funnily - its set during the Christmas season and the soundtrack is full of Xmas music sung in English - the only odd note coming at a wedding scene with the bride and father marching down the aisle to "O Christmas Tree"
fast paced at the start - slows appropriately as the story deepens - the plot turns more conventional towards the end - but by then - the spell had been cast
