Sweet Bean

Japan, 2015
Director: Naomi Kawase

Showing: 14 February 2018


An odd but sympathetic elderly woman turns up at a street pancake stall looking for work and offers the
owner a taste of her homemade bean jelly, which convinces him to hire her, a decision which brings with it the usual unforeseen consequences. A simple story with sensitive performances is enhanced by remarkable cinematography.
