Your comments:

The Japanese film Sweet Bean I thought started off very well with an intriguing story line. I was puzzled who the girl was - presumed she was the lead's daughter - but apparently not. She did not seem to have any particular role. About two-thirds of the way in we met a fellow OAP resident who produced some delicious confection but she refused to reveal the secret. Was this the start of another opportunity? Sadly not for the plot finished abruptly there. It tailed off from there and rather fizzled out I thought.
NB Next time - well there won't be another showing - wouldn't it have been nice to have had some dorayaki to try so we could see what all the fuss was about.
