Our Little Sister

Even if you don't speak Japanese or you're not into Japanese culture, Our Little Sister is a lovely movie. A simple story, aren't all the best ones simple? Three sisters go to their estranged father's funeral, and meet their little sister. As she is not happy with her father's new wife/widow, she agrees to come and live with her three sisters. It sounds like the father wasn't the most reliable husband/partner, doesn't it? And the three older sisters's mother isn't much better. But the four sisters have got each other. And that's all that matters. And don't you love the feeling of the heat of a Japanese summer? And how a traditional Japanese house is perfect to let in the cooling breezes. And it was wonderful to see the making of umeshū (plum wine)! I'll be watching this one again and again!
