A part of life
13 July 2019 | by EasternZZSee all my reviews

This movie is about accidentally finding out your passion in life, without knowing it. Sometimes you just do things because you want to try something new, and eventually it becomes your passion. This is a slow movie, but it does have some good acting and a few emotional scenes.

It is about a girl who finishes school but her perception of reality is false. She cannot find a job, her boyfriend leaves her, and she find slight happiness in the process of making and serving tea.

There are mostly actresses in this movie (I think there are only 2 - 3 actors). At least 80% of the movie takes place in the tea room, but because of the story it works. The story does move pretty fast, for example one scene takes place in a day, then the next scene just fast forwards a year later. It covers about 25 years of our main lady's life in under 2 hours, but that is not the important part. It is about how fast time moves, and how things change over time.

Anyways, it is a good film and we get to see a legendary Japanese actress one more time before her death.

8/10
