Suzuki’s hair-trigger temper is held somewhat in check by the motherly instincts of his wife, Tomoe, and his young son Ippei immediately bonds with Mutsuko as if she were his older sister. The Suzuki shop lies almost in the shadow of the Tokyo Tower as it rises steadily above the skyline during construction in 1958. Others in the neighborhood also are striving to better themselves as Japan continues to emerge from the shadow of war. Hiromi has just abandoned her shady life as a dancer to start a sake bar. Abandoned by his single mother, young Junnosuke is first handed off to Hiromi but she passes him off to Ryunosuke Chagawa, a struggling writer who runs a candy shop and only manages to sell adventure stories for boys as his serious novels continue to be rejected. Junnosuke is an avid reader of Chagawa’s stories and begins to idolize him upon learning about his authorship. Junnosuke also writes stories, and makes friends with Ippei and others when they discover his tales that show Japan in the hi-tech future of the 21st century.

A wonderful movie film.
It begins with a view from a young girl getting her grand dream of working in Tokyo and expands into such a complex story. A wonderfully written movie with a great story telling of humanity and lessons of life that everyone can learn from. It’s a beautiful movie. Why isn’t it here in the US??? I saw the movie en-route to Tokyo in March 2006. there were a lot of foreign films that are very well down, perhaps, American film makers should watch more foreign films and learn how to tell a story right. This movie alone worth my trip and I will always travel on China Airlines for it’s good choice of movies. Movies like this should be imported more often. All actors done a good job. I have only cried about a movie twice before, this is the 3rd film made me cry!
A true delight
Does a wonderful job of giving the viewer a look at what life in 1958 Tokyo was like. Likable characters, believable situations, and terrific recreation of a period neighbourhood.
The atmosphere is spot-on as is the ‘mood’ of the people, and they must have raided every antiques shop, not to mention more than a few museums to produce several of the scenes.
There’s what has to be one of the most memorable scenes involving something which doesn’t exist that I can recall. Won’t say more for fear of spoiling it, but it worked beautifully in context.
There’s even mostly happy endings, though they do set up the possibility of a sequel and now that I know there is one, I’m very much looking forward to seeing it.
