Audience Reviews for Kawa no soko kara konnichi wa (Sawako Decides)

  • Oct 03, 2014
    Sawako is a young woman who can't seem to settle in life. When we meet her, she is several years into life in Tokyo after leaving her small town home to follow a man. Since then she has had a series of bad relationships and worse jobs. Currently, she tests toys for a living, has awful depressing co-workers, and is dating one of her bosses - a single dad who enjoys knitting, and is intent on making her "okasaan" (mother) to his solemn young daughter. Sawako is uncomfortable around children. When Sawako's father becomes terminally ill from cirrhosis (a fate Sawako seems to be hurling towards herself as she's also constantly drinking), she returns home, accompanied by the boyfriend and small child, and has to face what she left behind. Along the way, Sawako decides what to do with her life. Though it's kind of a film about settling, and not the most uplifting or positive message, it is realistic and there is niceness to it. Though I'm far from a child person, even I found the relationship between Sawako and the sad child moving.
