Japan, France, Germany, 2015, 113’, Color, Japanese with English and Turkish subtitles

Based on Durian Sukegawa’s novel of the same name, the film’s protagonists are, in the director’s words, “two souls who unite in order to face life’s obstacles.” Sentaro is the owner of a small bakery that sells dorayaki, a type of Japanese pancake filled with red bean jam. Tokue offers to help Sentaro out at the bakery. At first Sentaro is hesitant to take her up on her offer, but the desserts that Tokue makes using her secret recipe are so delicious that before long, crowds are lining up at the bakery door. Over time the two women develop a special bond and gradually begin to open up to one another, sharing their trials and tribulations, and taking a journey into the past.
