Super cute movie; light plot but with deeper philosophical and political implications for those who seek them. I especially liked the choreographed movements of the group of sumo wrestlers, and the accompanying music. Just for that I would see them movie more than once. Most importantly, it puts Israel and Isarelis into a normal perspective and does the same for the problem of obesity. It puts a new spin on it that will stay with the viewer and will positively affect his/her attitude towards non-mainstream people. The incorporation of Japanese non-Jewish characters into the film is interesting. It creates further food for thought about all kinds of relationships, not only between Jews and Gentiles, but also between men and women, gays and heterosexuals, parents and grown children, prisoners and wardens, and all this, of course, through the main thin/fat dichotomy that dominates the thinking of the main characters.
