When registering of MUBI, I'm surprised how many Japanese film people see which I don't know completely. So, "Mr. Thank You" is my first Simizu's film. Despite of lilting music like going to picnic, this road movie reflects severe situation that Japan falled into a poverty & just tried to give rise to a war against China or world. But at same time, this has most scrumptious & beautiful smoking scene I've ever seen.
