We must have been on the same flight because I also saw this movie on my flight out of Japan (American Airlines). Anyways, how lucky was I to see a film this great on an airline flight? Its absolutely heartwarming. The movie is about an emotionally incoherent man, Haruo, who travels back to his hometown for his Mother's second marriage. Just, wanting to go back as soon as he can, he accidentally meets up with his old Sweetheart, a one night stander who left 7 years ago after sleeping with him, coming back from a failed marriage and with her daughter, chihiro. she reacquaints with him (in the most risqué of all manners)and ask him to visit her, which he does. Upon his visit to her house he finds her missing and her 7 Year old daughter left alone. From here, the story picks up as we follow their one-day adventure to find Chihiro's mother. Bonds begin to form as Haruo wonders if Chihiro is actually his own daughter.
A wonderful and heartwarming story, it touches people because of its wonderful simplicity. I highly recommend everyone to see this movie
