A beautiful, dreamy & very funny film that will touch your heart
I adore the Japanese sense of humour, this film captures it & translates it for all audiences. It is so lovely to watch, beginning at a slow, quiet pace, you may even want to switch off in the first 15mins but stick with it because this film unfolds to tell a simple & uplifting story that will pull at your heart strings but at the same time, amuse you . Set in the Japanese countryside a young girl is desperate to get away from her mother. She moves out, learns to cook & saves up enough money to open a restaurant until her boyfriend decides to steal it all from her. Penniless, Rinco is forced to return home but finds that she can achieve her dreams on her mothers doorstep & this wonderful tale unfolds.This made me laugh out loud & then bought tears to my eyes on a flight back from New York & I cant wait to see it again. This is also a must see for all pig fans out there.
