If you are looking for a good, heart-warming family movie, just pick Always: Sunset On Third Street (2005, Japan). The story is about the life of several people of a community in Japan who are connected to each other during the post-war in Tokyo. The setting is in 1950s, when Tokyo Tower is being built. This movie made me smile happily and cry, then jumped me back to joy for the next second, just like what you expect from a good family movie. This movie apparently is a trilogy, which unfortunately I just happened to watch the first two (Promised to watch the last one soon!). Watching Always: Sunset On Third Street brought me back the same nostalgic feeling I had when I read Andrea Hirata’s Laskar Pelangi (The Rainbow Troops the novel, not the movie.. the movie sucks!). I could also find some similarities between them. Yet juxtapositions aren’t welcomed here because I don’t want to compare both of these masterpieces I loved!
