Lovely film. The book, "Sweet Bean Paste", is worth a read as well. Both have similar spirit. The book has a few more details, but the film doesn't suffer because of their absence.

A heartwarming and heartbreaking multi-generational quiet story that unfolds slowly, like the process of cooking red bean paste. Everyone has a story. Cherry blossoms are an added bonus.

My child was complaining before we watched. Another drama movie and subtitles, he said. After watching everybody including them were in tears.

A quiet moment of genius. This film warms the heart and is as sweet and satisfying as the dorayaki it lovingly captures. Such strong and honest performances from the three leads and the most gorgeous cinematography. Sakuras help too.

A movie that I highly recommend- Reminding us all to be mindful of others- We all have stories in life but we are all connected by mother nature.

Extraordinarily touching, brilliantly conceived and rendered. Makes me hope that the novel on which it is based is available in English. I cannot recommend this film highly enough.

A thoughtful commentary on the gifts we bring and the stories that shape us. A gentle and meditative film, sensitively done, reflecting on the lives of leprosy patients in Japan. Love the cherry blossoms.
