Comments: a slice of life about a Japanese woman who opens a diner in Finland. She meets a couple people (the other two Japanese people in Finland?) and they come to work for her, but not much else happens. It's slow and inviting and very pleasant. I loved every minute of it except those involving a drunk older lady who tries to be the film's drama point.

Summary: The movie is set around a Japanese diner in Finland, and its owner, Sachie (Satomi Kobayashi). The story revolves around the diner, as well as the friendships that Sachie develops, with customer and crew. The food, "soul foods" as in the menu, can make anyone salivate and feel hunger pangs, especially when the movie was screened into dinner time
