qbenk yes.. absolutely agree! with sutairu and shazr. i think its way japanese promoted their atmosphere. they culture and habit. :) i just simply sit and watching the movie flow away. you should watching Bread of Happiness too guys. *sorry for my bad english. ;p

sutairu beautiful slow japanese movies are the best!!! my favourites: megane, kamome diner, lost in translation, aruitemo aruitemo, pool, etc...

shazr Well, on the contrary, this is exactly what I like about japanese movies. They are perhaps slower than usual.. but they are still beautiful.

dreamer I love Japan, but Japanese keep making these kind of movies...which is kind of boring...
