Storyline

Chagawa finds it increasing difficult to support his young ward Junnosuke in his store across the street from the Suzuki garage on Third Street. Unless he can provide a better life, Junnosuke's rich father, Kawabata will take him away. Chagawa focuses once again on winning the "Akutagawa-sho" literary award and the prize money coming with it. Mika, a 7-year old relative of the Suzukis is left to stay with them when her father has business reverses. She is accustomed to a richer life style and at first her behavior is very spoiled but is humbled when sees the menial chores that her same-aged cousin Ippei performs. Mutsuko continues to work in the family as a mechanic but has an aspiring boyfriend Takeo, who is studying cooking. Chagawa seeks to find Hiromi, who has become successful once more as the exotic dancer "Betty." Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Wow
28 May 2008 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

One of the best family dramas I have seen. i was wondering how they would continue from the first movie where everything seemed settled. Boy, was I wrong! Not only does this movie wrap up everything (maybe?) but it had me crying tears of joy at the end.

The first movie got a 10 from me and I admit crying like a baby at the end of it. Part two was almost as good and worth every penny/yen I spent renting it. I will be buying the DVD box set of the two movies and will be very happy to watch them from time to time.

I could not recommend these two movies highly enough.

PS: If you haven't seen the first one DO NOT WATCH THIS ONE! You'll be lost and won't enjoy it. You have to see part one first.
