Amazing movie
4 September 2018 | by bloodworiaSee all my reviews

Watched this second movie on the plane ride back from Japan. It simply amazed me, i laughed and i cried. Its just something so different than what we in the west are used to, it has its own wonderful charm. I dont know much about family life in Japan, but that a lot how i imagine it. Though id consider the movie as a comedy it has some serious topics to it and makes you think about family and its value. Cant wait to see the third movie in the future. Hopefully i can watch it somewhere, its hard enough to find these movies back in europe.

I watched the first one today with a friend and it also was really good.
