Predictable but sweet
9 July 2019 | by msmuffintopSee all my reviews

I found this movie to be enjoyable, sweet and although predictable highly entertaining. There were many poignant scenes full of meaning and metaphor, the wind in the trees, fog in the mountains, the direction of the shoes. The three young leads were charismatic. The older characters were also subtle and interesting. "Omotenashi" is Japanese hospitality, an art form that was very visible when I visited Japan in the 70s and 80s. As the movie depicts it's now seen as quaint, old-fashioned, irrelevant. But is it?
