A underrated gem of Japanese storytelling.
3 June 2016 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The story is about a girl named Natsume, that visits Tokyo because her ex-boyfriend moved there. Having helped her father in his local cake shop before, she ends up realizing her love of baking while in Tokyo and decides to train under the chef at the store her loser boyfriend left; the "Patisserie Coin de rue". There, she learns the ropes, and also meets Tomura, who was a well known Patissier, but had stopped baking because his daughter died in an accident while he was baking (he forgot to pick her up from school). Natsume manages to him back to baking because her boss is in the hospital. The rest of the movie shows Natsume and Tomura, working together to prepare for a banquet. Also the movie shows Natsume maturing and realizing her own dreams. It also shows us many pastries and delicious looking desserts. I love food themed J-Dramas and movies, like "Dinner", "Hungry!" and so on, so I really enjoyed this one too. It really was nice to see all the customers and their smiles after eating the desserts that were displayed in the drama. Albeit this is a very slow paced movie, it is a Japanese movie made in the best tradition of Japanese storytelling, it's definitely not a movie for the mass audience. But for people whom enjoy a movie with a story elegantly told and also very elegantly filmed this movie is a must watch.
