Romantic, funny and entertaining
9 November 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a woman who used to play table tennis because her mother was the coach of the town's table tennis club. After a hiatus of 15 years, she decides to play table tennis again to be close to the man she likes.

"Mix" is a typical romantic comedy. The great thing is that there is a lot of comedy. The characters are all different and distinctive, so it is really easy to tell who is who. The story is good, as it provides the background information on why Tamiko stops playing, then her struggle to play, then her struggle to practice very hard for the national competition. The final match is intense, engages me and makes me want to know the outcome of the match. I enjoyed it a lot as I found it entertaining.
