Kamome diner/Ruokala lokki

Screen grabs from the Official Movie Site.

I saw Kamome Diner on the plane on the way back from Japan. I really enjoyed it and have found myself thinking about it over the last week. It's about a Japanese woman, Sachie, who opens a diner in Helsinki, Finland and about the friends she makes in the process. It's gorgeous to look at and while the plot is simple the movie has a really nice feeling about it.

I love that little Japanese cafes decorate their menus with hand drawn pictures. It was certainly something we encountered.
