Andrew Pulver Guardian It isn't exactly a laugh a minute, and some of the comedy is way too broad, but it exerts a quiet hold. Rated: 3/5 May 10, 2012 Full Review Cath Clarke Time Out The acting is at times unwatchably broad, ultimately squeezing the life and charm out of the whole enterprise. Rated: 2/5 May 10, 2012 Full Review Liz Haycroft Little White Lies Take a nap until something better comes along. Rated: 2/5 May 10, 2012 Full Review Patrick Gamble CineVue Ishii has managed to create yet another female driven drama which successfully weaves gentle comedy with an underlying social message. Rated: 3/5 Jan 8, 2019 Full Review Isabel Stevens ViewLondon Just like its feisty protagonist, Ishii Yuya's film is one of a kind (albeit perhaps not the kind for everyone). Rated: 3/5 Aug 27, 2018 Full Review Shaun Munro What Culture Armchair philosophy and scarcely likable characters make Yya Ishii's disappointing latest feature more of a challenge than a treat. Rated: 2.5/5 May 16, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Who said all Japanese are conventional?! A very enjoyable and touching wacky story. It's unconventional so it's not going to appeal to everyone, but that doesn't make it bad, just different. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
