Noriben - The Recipe for Future

8:00 PM


Akira Ogata, 107 Min, Narrative, Japanese with English subtitles, Japan, 2009


Komaki, who was raised in the working-class downtown district of Tokyo, has had enough of the failures of her novelist husband Noritomo and decides to take her daughter Noriko to her mother’s home. Aiming for a completely new start, she sets out, full of hope, looking for a job, but finds nothing other than numerous doors being slammed in her face. After the "noriben" that she packed for Noriko's lunch becomes a huge hit at the kinder garden, she decides to open her own "bento" shop offering good inexpensive food. She forcibly apprentices herself to Toya, the owner of the renowned restaurant “Totoya”.


The film was premiered in 2009 at Hawaii International Film Festival – at the “Spotlight on Japan”, and was also screened at Nippon Connection – Nippon Cinema.
