The way of tea or the way of life
25 April 2019 | by halewis-39555See all my reviews

Nichi Nichi Kore Kojitsu - Every day a good day. (100 minutes)

One Japanese college student - Noriko, who was about to graduate the following year, has always been viewed as dull and having little achievements in life, was once recommended by her mother to attend Chado class, learning about the traditional tea ceremony, not knowing that it would benefit a great deal and account for her sanctuary to pursue happiness one day.

The movie quite actually portrayed different areas of life throughout her bad days and her good days without focusing on them in accordance with the way of tea, but it unfolded them one event at a time for us to sense its purpose and to figure out how to polish self-awareness towards self-fulfilment.

Chado is a complex series of movements you can absorb very little from it if you overanalyze or to the contrary, overlook, too often. It's hard to learn by heart if your mind keeps asking why. Merely like how we form our perception, as a watcher, we would look at this tea drinking experience from the harmonious balance conducted between guest, host and natural surroundings; from accompanying elements such as the bowls, the sweets, or the wooden tea room's ink painting; but most satisfying above all, from the stillness in the nick of time between passing and arriving seasons. We would enjoy it to the fullest if we centralize ourselves in it.

It took Noriko 24 years later to genuinely understand the meaning of "Every day is a good day" but she was eventually able to have realized her dream.
