April was not only a month of Fake Journaling, but it was a month of Japanese movies for me - a combination of the Japanese Film Festival, Google Play and Netflix.

To say that An was a sweet movie might be a bit of a bad pun (the English title is Sweet Bean), but it is the fist word that comes to my mind when I think of it.

A very gentle story about an old woman who starts to work in a little dorayaki shop. She makes her own delicious red bean paste, and the shop soon thrives. However, rumours start to spread about her gnarled hands... It's not all sweetness and pie, but it is beautiful.

PS - I've never tasted dorayaki, but I will have to try it some day!

Available on Google Play.
