Sweet Bean
Drama, International | 2016 | NR. 1hr 53min
CAST: Kirin Kiki, Masatoshi Nagase, Kyara Uchida DIRECTOR: Naomi Kawase SISTER CITIES FILM FESTIVAL - Kitakyushu, Japan

The manager of a pancake stall finds himself confronted with an odd but sympathetic elderly woman looking for work. A taste of her homemade bean jelly convinces him to hire her, which starts a relationship that is about much more than just street food.

The movie, beautifully shot and acted, earns its ultimate sense of hope by confronting real heartbreak head-on, and with compassion.
Glenn Kenny, New York Times
Sweet Bean is a respite from special-effect sodden blockbusters and cookie-cutter dramas and a delightful reminder about life's modest joys.
