Storyline

Yuki is a 9-year-old Japanese girl who lives in France and is best friends with 9-year-old French girl Nina. One day, Yuki's mother informs her that she will be divorcing her father and that she will be taking Yuki to live in Japan with her. Yuki is strongly against moving to Japan, and, with Nina's help, they attempt to stop the divorce. However, when their plans fail, running away together seems to be the only solution.

Everything a drama should be
17 November 2010 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

I don't have much to say about this movie in terms of plot or details - mainly just wanted to provide some positive comments to balance out the only other review here, which is so negative.

If you don't appreciate cultures outside your own, if you don't have any experience with them, if you require constant music to manipulate your emotions, or if you don't enjoy movies which just "are," which avoid cliché or outlandish plots and which don't try and force themselves upon you, then don't bother with this movie.

On the other hand, if you find something special and a personal connection in quiet looks at realistic life, including truly cross-cultural marriage (not just cross-racial) and the experiences children have in the midst of such situations, then I really think you'll enjoy this film.
