Storyline

Natsume-kun is a florist and Kiho-kun is a chef cooking Japanese ramen noodles. Natsume has a passion for his work and treats it not just as a business, but also as a labour of love. He spends a lot of time making the flowers presentable. Natsume, on the other hand, is doing it in a perfunctory fashion. She inherited the parlour from her father. The restaurant is about to be shuttered. The florist and the ramen restaurant are close to one another. Written by aghaemi

A lovely little film
1 February 2020 | by erikendayoSee all my reviews

I recently watched this film "Mellow" in Japan and loved everything about it from the photography to the music and beautifully crafted with charming characters.

The director is Rikiya Imaizumi also wrote the script.He has got a good reputation for capturing and depicting the ordinary people's emotions and feelings, with this film being full of those moments.

This is not a thrilling entertainment type of film, however it gives you a warm feeling after you watch it. It reminded me of how important and precious it is telling someone that you love them.

I highly recommend this lovely film.
