Firstly, I want to watch the film with a pure felling like when you are in a childhood. All of us have a precious memory in our childhood when we feel that many stuff is shiny. In this film, there are a lot of objects that are not cared for. However, when we watch this film, we think they are so important and valuable like we are children. Secondly, what is the value of the gift? The answer is that which is not common to us. A person maybe want shiny stuff, the other person wants expensive stuff, so there is no answer. In this film, there are not many subtitles, so after you watch the film, you could expect the story after the end. Also, we can think what is a really important thing for us. I would like to watch the film and recall a wonderful feeling in childhood that we maybe forget.
