    It's a relatively sweet movie. The ability of the new owner to come in and look behind the rough exterior that the Hedghog has built up over time is fascinating. But Paloma - the young girl - is so annoying in the first half of the film that she drained much of my will to keep watching.

    A light but emotionally heady confection from France.

    Igawa is almost a magical presence, projecting a calm in Ozu that is infectious.
