As Matsuda Ryuhei's character says, there are certain delicacies of uniquely Japanese creation. This film is one of them, with a light and pretty exterior but a rich depth at its heart. I don't think I'll be suspected of teenage fangirl favouritism (seeing as I'm neither teenaged or a fangirl) when I say that, as with so many of his lighter films, Matsuda is the core acting talent who brings the best performances out of his two female leads. That's not to say that Aragaki and Kikuchi are not already well above pretty-face levels in their roles, and their relationship is wonderfully natural.
This sweet thing couldn't be made or re-made by any other country but Japan, and I personally kept wanting to walk into the screen and live in the world that Akiko Oku & Co. created.
