With An, director Kawase Naomi has managed to make a stellar bittersweet film. She could have made it a sugary pancake, but some of its stuffing caught me by surprise, and the film as a whole is a dish I very much recommend.
Although "Sweet Bean" does not succeed fully in examining the issues it presents, it is, nevertheless, a film of extreme beauty, which will definitely entice the audience senses, and particularly the appetite.
Kawasi builds on the simple metaphorical significance of the set-up to tease out a much deeper and more compassionate study of the way our natural inclination to shun the marginalised in society diminishes us as a whole.
