A touching film about a young woman's search for her identity
25 July 2010 | by (Japan/Germany) – See all my reviews

I rarely post reviews of films on IMDb, but was moved to do so by escadamausgaby's unnecessarily scathing one-pont review of the film.

In contrast to his deeply negative impression, I found the film very beautiful & moving. Miyayama employed beautiful framing and use of light. The acting was very good.

Sure there were odd things like the Jack Wolfskin rucksack that were not explained, but this did not detract from the storytelling. It would have been pretty boring to include a scene of her buying a German brand rucksack because her Japanese bag got damaged en route just to satisfy a handful of pendants like escadamausgaby. To be sure, we were given hints ahead of time of in what way the story would unfold, but for me that only enhanced the emotional impact of the story.

For me Marie Miyayama was very successful at conveying the heart of her story - one certainly felt the sincerity of the director's intent. I look forward to seeing more films from Miyayama in the future.
