So, this is another Japanese movie that I watched recently and accidentally. The story tells us about a university student named Tsuneo. He worked at a casino where he heard a story about a weird old lady who always takes a stroll with a baby cart. After that, Tsuneo finds that lady and found out that she takes her grandchild to a walk everyday with the baby cart because her grandchild can’t walk.
One of the things that I like from a Japanese movie is the comedy part, and this movie has it. It makes me laugh, however, it doesn’t last long. With the length takes almost 2 hours, I got bored through half the movie. The idea of the story itself is great and it can be a one touching movie even with some silly parts. But, it turns out to be that boring romance movie.
The worse thing is that I decided to finish it, because the worst part of the movie is the ending. I don’t want to spoil it here, but I just asked myself like “really? That’s it?” because I just can’t understand what the ending really wants to tell us. Also, the length is too long that there are so many unimportant parts that actually can be used more to build the plot of the story.
Apart from the story, it also has the thing that I also like from a Japanese movie, the color hue. With that calm color that gives you a soothing feeling and definitely doesn’t hurt your eyes, the movie is pleasing to be seen. Unfortunately, the taste of the music isn’t really fit my taste. It gives you that kind of old movie feeling, though the movie is not really that old.
I don’t really suggest this movie, but you can watch it if you have the time. Because even if the ending is disappointing, I like how the characters are very unique here and I think all the actors done their job very well.
