this movie was by far a film which will be remembered for a long long time. The perfect childhood, the perfect rural school life, accompanied by a stress free lifestyle. This film addresses the inner child in all of us, and reminds us adults of the playful nature of children, bringing us in a happy feeling. In contrast to Tokyo lifestyle, gentle breeze reveals a truly unique and wonderful journey from the eyes of the young, and how ones childhood will soon be long gone, but never forgotten. A really really feel good film. 4 1/2 stars.
