The movie tells the story of a couple who fervently prayed for a blessing. In answer to their earnest request, the heavens gifted them with a child. From then on, the new family traverses the happy and sad paths of life.
A romantic anthology with five episodes featuring five love stories in Japan, United States, Norway, the Island of Saipan, and the one in Rjukan Norway, where the sun is brought down where the can't shine by large mirrors.
A loose adaptation of Hamlet, "The Night Banquet" is set in an empire in chaos. The Emperor, the Empress, the Crown Prince, the Minister and the General all have their own enemies they would like to finish off at a night banquet.
Quirky, cute and fun, perfectly terrible rom-com spy movie!
By happy accident I was able to watch My Lucky Star. It was cute, quirky and delightful to watch. I'm not one to normally watch subtitled work so the fact that I enjoyed this so much is evidence to it's greatness.
But don't misunderstand me, it's greatness comes from how quirky and yet terrible it is. Like old school spy movies, the main character reminds me heavily of the traditional professional man, but mix in Sophie and it gets zany! I think she really pulls you into the movie as you see her dreams come true (although in a more realistic(ish) kind of way).
This movie deserves the credit for pinning down romantic, realistic, comedic, sassy and hopeful. In my opinion it is the perfect cheesy rom-com spy movie.
Might just depend on if you can understand why the main man character is so "wooden," they do explain it in the beginning (no spoilers though!)
