Critic Reviews for Sweet Bean (An)
Sweet Bean is sentimental fare for sure, but sometimes familiar tastes prove quite a comfort.
No pretension or faux-poeticism - just a well-made domestic drama.
If it is possible to be at once clear-eyed and sentimental, Kawase achieves that in this heartbreakingly beautiful film.
Its sentimentality is tempered by the elegant restraint of the fine lead performances.
Ms. Kawase's sweet, slow film -- very slow, I'm obliged to say -- becomes a meditation on solitary lives lived at the margins of society; on old age, and on the urgency of telling our stories, which may sometimes include recipes.
Audience Reviews for Sweet Bean (An)
Lovely movie. Quite sad by the end, but also very moving with flawed but engaging characters. I loved the scenes with the Sakura too.
