A film about the lives of a group of children in a small village.
A Gentle Breeze in the Village (Tennen kokekko) is by far one of the most beautiful films I've seen in recent years. It's not about superheroes or villains, the famous or the rich, wars or parties. It's about life. That is what I love about this film. It's a reminder of the simple pleasures of life that should never be forgotten.
The young actors have such good chemistry and the settings are stunning. The film in all has a light hearted humor that makes it a joy to watch.
Hence, I'm giving this movie a 10/10 for being the best film I've seen all year, and hopefully everyone else who sees this film will agree with me.
