Sentarô, who has agreed to hire Tokue in his shop, sees his clientele double overnight, won over by his pastry skills. But the old lady hides a less avowable secret and disappears as she had appeared, leaving Sentarô to interpret in her own way the lesson she shared with her.
Beautifully adapted for the screen by Cannes-winning filmmaker Naomi Kawase, Durian Sukegawa's novel is an ode to cooking and life. Poignant, poetic, sensual: a delight.
