SWEET RED BEAN PASTE (AN) (Japan, 2015) Naomi KawaseSweet_red_Bean_Paste_An

This charming fable about a small shopkeeper whose pastry business is saved by a stranger, Tampopo-style, is a recipe for how to live a simple and happy life. Based on a novel by Tetsuya Akikawa, Kawase's adaptation provides an intimate and immensely moving portrait of lost people who come together and learn to find some direction in their lives. An will leave you with a sense of warmth and hope–and likely a well-recovered appetite. 2015 São Paulo International Film Festival, winner: Audience Award; 2015 Asia Pacific Screen Awards, winner: Best Actress. Japanese language. 113 min.
