45-year-old nurse and mother Yoko lives with her only daughter Tsukiko. The duo has a tight relationship that resembles more best friends rather than mother and daughter. Tsukiko's father passed away before she was born and since that time Yoko has always stated Tsukiko's father would be the first and last man she will marry. One evening, Yoko, who is drunk, brings home 30 year old Hattori Kenji and they both sleep outside on the porch. The next morning, Tsukiko becomes confused by the situation and becomes even confused when her mother announces that she will marry the much younger Hattori Kenji. Kenji, who has dyed blond hair, used to be a chef, but doesn't currently hold a job. Tsukiko is shocked by the situation and runs over to her neighbor/landlord Saku's home. Tsukiko then shuts herself off from her mother and her new boyfriend. Meanwhile, people around them try to repair Yoko and Tsukiko's relationship, but there's also a secret between Yoko and Tsukiko.

    Saw this one at Nippon Connection Festival in Frankfurt, Germany in May 2011. I'm always pleasantly surprised by the simple and low-key narration of Japanese films. There were plenty lovely moments in "Here comes the bride" like that dialogue when the guy tells her the story about his grandmother waking up and saying "I wanna meet James Dean" - priceless line. Plus, the whole flashback of the daughter's co-worker harassing her was masterfully acted and directed. Stayed in my mind for a long time. I would compare it to Kenneth Lonergan's "You can count on me", since it appears so ordinary, but is highly affecting. Very rare these days. Looking forward to this year's Nippon Connection and hopefully get surprised again.
