    This film is slow; first things first. But I don't know why for sure that going through it earlier in the day somewhat warms my heart.

    It's the first film by this director that I've personally seen, and it's really safe to say that I wasn't disappointed at all.

    Yes, there are moments where I feel that Park Hae-il's professor is an unlikable character. And then I was also a little confused by the last 20 minutes.

    A very fun film, purely meant for popcorn entertainment and nothing more.

Speaking of which, honestly speaking it kinda gives me more hope that as a fellow non-Indian; I got a chance to do a film there someday,…

    If you happen to love both cooking and Hashimoto Ai, then I'm pretty sure you'll going to enjoy this film.

    For me, it's personally one of the most heart-warming films to come out of Japan; and the best thing is that it wasn't even a family drama.

    Next to that, I really admire how peaceful this film feels; which is something I, unfortunately, can't describe by words. It's like watching one of those NHK food documentaries more than watching a…
