Storyline

32-year-old Tatsuo Fukuda, nickname "Fuku-chan" (Miyuki Oshima), is a painter who lives in a run-down apartment complex called Fukufuku Flats. He has been a resident ever since he moved to Tokyo after graduating from junior high school in rural Tochigi Prefecture, and has held the same job the whole time. He spends his days working up a sweat painting buildings, his nights mediating disputes between the other denizens of Fukufuku Flats, and his days off flying handmade kites down by the riverside. Fuku-chan is a popular guy who treats everyone equally and with kindness, but romance is his Achilles heel, which causes him to totally mess up a date arranged by his workmate Shimacchi (Yoshiyoshi Arakawa). One day, an unfamiliar woman turns up at Fukufuku Flats. When she tells Fuku-chan her name, he is astonished. It is Chiho, his first love from his junior high school days who he has not seen for around 20 years, and she has come to apologize for something that happened in their past. As ...

...very good movie; I do not see it as a comedy, but more like a drama with humor. Main character has always good pace, good feelings and see the best of the persons; even, when he has a not so good situation. -the movie shows that sometimes no matter how big your heart is or how good your intentions are or how intelligent or talented you are; in the times where we live and in most modern societies, how do you look is the most important factor...then the other stuff.

The acting is good; the scenes and plot roll alright.

All that with a couple of twists that only a Japanese flick can have. It s an easy going movie, so you do not be disappointed.
