A wonderful movie which would appeal not only to Japanese audience but others too!
This is a classic movie about 7 or 8 students in a small Japanese village. It especially would be an interesting movie to people living in big cities. It shows the life of school children in a small village. The closeness of people and their affection to each other are nicely shown. I would have given 10/10 but the story could have used more affection between the two main characters in the movie. A must see for the people who grew up in cities like me. Very interesting movie overall.The website guys wouldn't let me post unless I write at least 10 lines. This is plain idiotic. It will be 10 lines in the next sentence. Now it is 10 lines as they required!
