  1. hubertguillaud's rating of the film Sweet Red Bean Paste

    "Nous sommes nés pour regarder et pour écouter ce monde. Alors, même sans réussir dans la vie, nous... pouvons trouver un sens à notre existence." Tokue aka la formidable actrice Kirin Kiri dans le sublime "Les delices de Tokyo", réalisé par Naomi Kawase. Ou comment la préparation de la pâte de haricots rouges confits nous rappelle à notre humanité. A mijoter patiemment.

  4. Cătălin, HiperCristalin's rating of the film Sweet Red Bean Paste

    Naomi Kawase is a Bodhisattva who chose to forgo nirvana in order to give us this movie.

  5. Matutinal Steel's rating of the film Sweet Red Bean Paste

  16. MONSIEURDE's rating of the film Sweet Red Bean Paste

  17. Marina C.'s rating of the film Sweet Red Bean Paste

    Reserved and yet so giving, melacholic but filled with positive end notes; Kawase's film embodied the peacefulness of cherry trees, representing the inevitable cycle of blossoming and decay and death, without the western fatality but with a soft, hopeful, acceptance and a reminder to enjoy youth and life and surroundings through the voice of Tokue.

  18. kesurupan's rating of the film Sweet Red Bean Paste

    Ultimately this movie is about finding one's purpose in life. Serene from start to finish. 20 Jul 2016

  19. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Sweet Red Bean Paste

    A sympathetic movie, but if this “old-woman-sharing-wisdoms-of-life”-story was made anywhere but in Japan I most likely wouldn’t have managed to sit through it. Yet there is this type of naivety that works strangely well in Japanese cinema. Perhaps it has to do with the humbleness or modesty that is reflected in their storytelling.
