A very warm film that is not only entertaining, but it reminds us about simple morals and lessons that we can all use in life. It reminds us that no matter what happens, we can always learn from our elders and how even if we fail, we can always try. This is already an achievement in itself. Things will work out somehow. Sometimes when we don't have the answers, we learn from those who have lived through them.
I enjoyed watching "Fukumimi" or "Lucky Ears" as the English title. Does anyone here know how I can buy DVDs of these movies and do they make ones with English subtitles (such as for international releases?)
TO ANYONE WHO HAS WATCHED FUKUMIMI/LUCKY EARS, what is the quote and saying that the lead characters mentioned towards the end of the movie while they were on the sea, something inspiring like "Listen to the wind and you will hear...something like that, very close. I think it was the advice from the old man.
