Very "kawaii" film about an eccentric female entrepreneur and her anti-social buddies
6 April 2016 | by missrazeSee all my reviews

Yea I have no idea what this movie's aim was, considering the main character aims to do so much and gets nowhere, but it was very funny, like the laughter became more out loud as it went by. The leading girl was very adorable but might be too much if you're not into or used to these types of quirky Japanese films. I like the understated flirtation between her and the punk rocker dude who surprisingly helps her...sort of, considering he went along with her on her weird adventures, but didn't lift a finger while there, so funny! It's all so charming.

Basically the leading woman is into antiques and heirlooms and family secrets, etc. She is lovably odd. Well she decides to open her own antique/pawn shop, after helping someone nice but distressed find a pricey antique they've longed for, for many years. With the encouragement of her weird and out-there (yet hilariously anti-social!) friends.

Owning your own business isn't some easy thing so with some struggles, she embarks on a sudden journey to her family's past with her new punk rock guy friend (I wanted to see a kiss at the end). Lots of cute, laugh out loud things happen in a 40-minute crescendo to the end, all happening because she wants to make it as an entrepreneur and whimsically goes off on her new but supported ideas. I like her. I like the film. I like the director. I just don't know where the plot went but what the hey, I repeat the film a lot and laugh every time...and still wish for that kiss. Time to look up who that stud is now....
