Ozmo I love this film. The more times I see it, the more I get out of it. It's a peaceful yet intriguing film. The characters are wonderful, all having a hole in their lives to fill. Mikako is just brilliant. Thanks to Naoko Ogigami for writing and directing this moving, quirky, and great film.

xnfec Loved the film. Shame it is not released here on dvd as I'd love to watch it again. Reminded me of Amalie

Mokatea At rikuo, that'd be a constructive comment if you at least told us what you didn't like about the movie. From the other comments, I can already gather that this movie is quirky and light. I'll be downloading and post another comment later. :)

rikuo I saw this movie in my room. It's not as good as what the comments said. I hate it.

Catherine Saw this quirky but sweet little film at the Mill Valley Film Festival. Great story line and fabulous acting by Mikako and the cats!

Maan Saw this on an ANA flight from Narita to LAX. Loved how quirky it was....trying to convince friends to watch it.

Laura M. I saw this movie on an ANA flight today from NRT-ORD, subtitled in English. It was definitely a cut above the two other movies I watched in flight (Mamma Mia! and The Lorax). This is the first Japanese movie I've watched, but I was quite favorably impressed.

DynamicDino Holy cow I saw it on a singapore airlines flight to. It was a pretty good movie

Titisari i also watched this movie in Singapore Airlines, fell in love in sudden. beautiful pictures, sweet dialogue, weird and fun in the same time.

Sally McLean Saw this (subtitled) on a Singapore Airlines flight and just loved it! Would love to add it to my home library. Quirky yet very personal and uplifting whilst remaining very poignant.

Rin Sounds like a heartwarming story. Cant wait to check it out~
