My good blog friend, Sun, kindly forwarded me the link to the television drama series Bread and Soup and Cat Weather. A beautiful piece of film work I have been wanting to watch for a very long time now. Staring Satomi Kobayashi, who has been in many of my favourite Japanese films encompassing a more simple and quiet lifestyle full of lifes little pleasures.
With only four, 50 minute episodes, this short series feels more like mini-movies taken in perfect little doses. Whether it be the quaint little cafe offering daily set meals of a simple homemade soup and sandwich, or the perfectly organized Muji-like apartment that comes with the company of a charismatic cat, or even the unexpected relationships built off of the many interesting characters in the neighborhood; you are sure to walk away with a light-hearted easy feeling from this show.
Though no English subtitles are offered, I still thoroughly loved all the episodes. I guess it may be to my benefit as well since it helped me study my Japanese on a more conversational level. Here's the link, I hope you enjoy it too!
