Tokyo Tower

Japan 2007

Details  tigercinema

Seen 18 October 2008

This is not a family saga in the usual mold of copious tears at every turn. It is a redeeming tale of love and devotion, sacrifices and determination. The love between a mother and son, her effort and dedication, his way of repaying all that the mother has done for him.

All these and more takes the audience into unspoken territory where words are not necessary in some instances.

There are moments when the dialogue is so apt, universal in its message, simple in its tone, but with a deep impact in our hearts.

A satisfying, engaging and cliché of clichés, poignant story, in some parts at least.
