Patisserie Coin De Rue

the Hawaii International Film Festival is back in town for spring with a nice selection of foreign films to choose from. and last night i went to see the new film starring Yu Aoi called Patisserie Coin De Rue.

full of delicious sweets any dessert person would die for. with a lot of funny parts, as well as very dramatic scenes, Yu Aoi was a joy to watch throughout this film. but she would probably be the only good reason for me to say that i would want to watch it again : mainly because even though there was a lot of drama going on, the movie seemed to move at a slow pace. the imagery was nice (with the shots throughout Tokyo and the cute cafe shops), but there were some irrelevant scenes that were a bit pointless and confusing. honestly, i liked Rinco's Restaurant much better.

but thats just my opinion :-p

I love her, she is such a good actress for someone so young. Thank you for letting me know. I am still trying to see Rinco's Restaurant.

I like her as an actress so will try to check out this movie.
but like you said, if it's slow moving and has scenes in it that don't really need to be there it may take me a while to get around to seeing it.
