Found it!
9 August 2005 | by canitSee all my reviews

This movie is a treasure. The beginning was a little tedious and drawn out, but I'm glad that I watched the rest of the film. The movie focuses on life and death. More specifically, it shows the richness of life despite the inevitability of death. Usually a movie with similar theme goes into a lot of tiresome pontifications, but this movie uses the subtle things of individual characters to gently convey its message. Little thing such as the mother taking care of her cripple daughter, the little girl with asthma, the kid who wants to help her mother by growing roses, and so forth. A touching little movie that will stick with you. I most definitely recommend it.
