  • Critic Reviews of "Sweet Bean"

    Los Angeles Times
    April 08, 2016

    Its sentimentality is tempered by the elegant restraint of the fine lead performances.

    Wall Street Journal
    April 07, 2016

    Ms. Kawase's sweet, slow film -- very slow, I'm obliged to say -- becomes a meditation on solitary lives lived at the margins of society; on old age, and on the urgency of telling our stories, which may sometimes include recipes.

    Chicago Reader
    April 07, 2016

    Ultimately Kawase is more interested in charting emotional and sensory landscapes than in thinking through any narrative thread, yet there's something to be said for the movie's sincerity and simple beauty.

    San Francisco Chronicle
    April 07, 2016

    Kawase handles the material delicately and skillfully, and Kirin - a one-time ingenue actress whose first important film was in one of the early "Tora-san" movies - hits all the right notes.

    Christian Science Monitor
    March 18, 2016

    A delicate little fable that creeps up on you. It seems slight at first, but it's held together by a performance from the veteran actress Kirin Kiki

    New York Times
    March 18, 2016

    The movie, beautifully shot and acted, earns its ultimate sense of hope by confronting real heartbreak head-on, and with compassion.

    Film Ireland Magazine
    January 03, 2017

    Sweet Bean is a film that does its conventions right but gives nothing impactful as a result.

    December 13, 2016

    Sweet Bean senses how even the tiniest change in the basic ingredients of one's life can yield considerable rewards.

    Brooklyn Magazine
    November 15, 2016

    Echoes of classic Japanese cinema resound all over Sweet Bean, but its tugs at the heartstrings feel calculated in a way that Ozu's and Naruse's never did.

    Irish Times
    August 09, 2016

    Sweet Bean's gentle, quiet drama shares DNA with the work of Kawase's compatriot, Hirokazu Koreeda. Sweet by name, sweet by nature.

    Sunday Independent (Ireland)
    August 08, 2016

    A subtle treat, Sweet Bean is an unusual and interesting gentle pleasure.
