Adorable, (less is more) film-making.
27 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film takes you back to the basics of life. It re-teaches one the values of friendship, through the simplicities of serene country living.

The small country village where the film takes place is so charming, it has a school that has only 7 students, and they are almost all in different years. When a new boy comes to the village he is welcomed with love from the children. The eldest of the group 'Soyo' is simply captivating in her curiosity towards 'Hiromi' the handsome boy from Tokyo, and we see her struggle to find a balance between falling in love for the first time and holding on or letting go as it were, of her mellow and precious life with the other children; that she still keeps close to her heart.

This is a very uplifting film, and the characters make it so. A graceful, heartwarming and inspiringly told story in my eyes, and those who find themselves sometimes wishing for 'a simple life' should enjoy it just as much as I did.
