A story of the unlikely friendship between two girls living in rural Japan. One is obsessed with the lifestyle and frilly dresses of 18th Century France while the other imagines herself as a tough biker, even though she's a teenage girl on a scooter. They are brought together by, get this, embroidery. This movie is full of touching and humorous moments and has the bright and fantasy-filled look of manga. Pure fun.

I love this movie. It's subtitled (unless you know Japanese) so you actually have to pay attention. You can definitely get the emotions of these girls and their family/friends. There are quite a few cut scenes to explain a situation, such as when people are talking about shopping at "Jusco", which I equate to our Wal-Mart. Grab some bright candy and popcorn and watch it.

Bright candy is a must!
