I want to introduce two Japanese films. One is "Toilet" and another is "Colorful". Both of them is a story about family and family ties.
I saw a Japanese film "Toilet" today. This is a film that a director "Naoko Ogigame" made recently. I like her movies. "Toilet" is a story of a three siblings and Japanese grandmother, "Baachan". Baachan ばあちゃん means grandmother in Japanese. Three siblings are Americans whose mother is Japanese woman. Baachan can't speak English, however, they live with her after their mother was dead. Older brother is Hikikomori. Hikikomori means person who lives at home whole a day, he can't establish relations with other people and can't go out. Younger brother is Otaku. Otaku means person who loves animation, comic books "Manga" or figures of animation's character. Situation of this film is very interesting and Toilet is a key of this film.
It is heart-warming story. Some classical musics in the film is so nice. If you are interested with Naoko Ogigami, I recommend to see "Kamome Shokudo."かもめ食堂” It is one of my favorite Japanese films.
I don't have a interest of animation film. However, "Colorful" is a animation film that I thought to want to see at theater. I have read the original novel of this film. I like it. It is not fantasy animation for kids. However, I think it is good for young people or adults who have some troubles with family to see. I like the image of this film. It is so exquisite.
