Clarkdale44 Well, it was a great movie, i all the casts performed their best. Great unique story line. Superb cinematography. I recommend it to all. I am glad i watched it.


I will give it 7/10(Good casting, good story)

Person Is it just me or am I the only one who noticed that Jun Inoue (the principal from Gokusen 2) is in this movie?

Ammz My friend and I saw this at the Japanese Film Festival in Sydney, and both loved it! We cried at the ending, and especially loved all the scenes with the sweets.

Bulmasan Don't knock the kitchen knife! He uses it very effectively in the movie.

I saw this at the San Diego Asian Film Festival and loved it (as did the rest of the audience). As soon as I can find a reasonably-priced DVD, I plan on buying it. Sweet (heh, especially for people who have seen the movie), unexpectedly funny, touching. Well worth viewing!

tian At first, I thought it's quite a generic one but I came to like all the elements (characters and situations), which are apparently compelling. Very light, indeed.

el i liked the movie a lot!!!! just LOVE IT! all actors (inc. adorable Fuku Suzuki) are GREAT! Scene in the subway when he says that age doesnt matter in relations and his reaction when he learn that She is 33 is sooooo funny! ^^ Ending is also GOOD! Cheers to film Director!

i also like Ryo Nishikido's acting in 'Attention Please' drama. He is so cute!!! Cant wait to see him in other films/dramas!

chue Ryo is so God damn bony! Is he anorexia? o.O It's like he hasn't eaten his vegetables for awhile. All JE boys need to! They're so tiny everywhere!

KATTUNberry looks interesting!! can't wait to see it... japan is bringing out some great movies at the mo! ryo-chan looks cute :P and so does the film

♥♥♥ Hopefully this movie got some flashback to his edo era period time! I want to see him use his katana sword! Not a friggin' kitchen knife!

chie_chan official web http://www.c-purin.jp/ .... with new trailer .... i think this movie will be heartwarming...
