Sweet Bean is an uplifting story of three lonely characters from different generations and ‘broken’ families finding themselves in friendships developed in the unlikely setting of a dorayaki shop – a shop specialising in the sale of cakes containing an or ‘sweet red bean paste’.

 

The film is imbued with director Naomi Kawase‘s passion for the natural world and the celebration of cherry blossom marks the beginning and end of a story that includes some social commentary as well as an education in traditional Japanese street food.
