Short Note: Talking About "Mother Water"

The opening film for this year's Japanese Film Festival. Light-hearted. One feels blessed with the humdrum of everyday, ordinary life. Our lives, like the river running through the little sleepy town in Kyoto, flow as if unchangingly. Yet, our lives are most interesting, as each of us evolves drop by drop. It's a blessing to be alive, really. Make your happiness today.

Totally fall in love with the opening few minutes: three ladies from different locations perform three related, ordinary tasks in sequence, yet the links between the tasks make each task beautiful despite its simplicity.
