Anne Where can I purchase this movie. I live in Australia?

Rob I loved this film when it premiered in North America and WON the Toronto Asian Film festival. I like the pace,(in a market plagued with "action" "adventure" and superficiality. The performances of the young actors and of the Ba Chan are impeccable, I did love one other film by this director,her story telling is flawless,

Bogeyman True, this is a quirky film. It leaves some sub plots unfinished. It runs slowly, and leaves much to guessing, like how Ray was adopted but he never follows up on his past, or why half Japanese kids don't speak a word of Japanese, not even "good morning". Some parts make no sense. But, both my wife and I cried watching it. Ba-chan was great. Everyone should have a Ba-chan like her. Heart warming, but funny movie. It is a must see.

Dianne Terauchi This film has everything. Grandmother, Grandchildren, a grandpiano, goyza and a cat named teacher, "sensei". The pace is slow but it gives you time to enjoy it more. It has many warm moments. I found this at the rental shop. No one I know has heard of this film. I liked it very much. A must see. The air-guitar was so funny. Don't miss it at the end. Goyza is eaten a lot in Japan but it's more like a China dish. It is true we do enjoy making it. The toilet is true too.

tosk An interesting little film, and well-shot. For me, Maury's arc was the most entertaining of the bunch. If I were to criticise anything, I would say the tone of the film was a little uneven in places, and some story elements seemed to lead nowhere - we see Ray's co-worker bugging him about getting a date, but it never pans out into anything, and the air-guitar subplot vs. the poetry subplot seems oddly incomplete.

Masato Motai's stoic performance was pitch-perfect, and her young co-stars held their own for the most part. It's a quirky little film that doesn't try too hard to be "quirky".

Saffrontiger A beautiful and heart touching movie......

Gerda Albert I loved very quirky minute of this delightful film. I'd like to have some identifying info as to the piano solos. All very familiar, but .....Can anyone help?

William Maddox I loved this film from start to finish Loved all the characters To me it reaches the parts other films cannot reach.
