A Surprise
5 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

Saw this one at Nippon Connection Festival in Frankfurt, Germany in May 2011. I'm always pleasantly surprised by the simple and low-key narration of Japanese films. There were plenty lovely moments in "Here comes the bride" like that dialogue when the guy tells her the story about his grandmother waking up and saying "I wanna meet James Dean" - priceless line. Plus, the whole flashback of the daughter's co-worker harassing her was masterfully acted and directed. Stayed in my mind for a long time. I would compare it to Kenneth Lonergan's "You can count on me", since it appears so ordinary, but is highly affecting. Very rare these days. Looking forward to this year's Nippon Connection and hopefully get surprised again.
