Sweet Bean is sentimental fare for sure, but sometimes familiar tastes prove quite a comfort.

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

For the most part, the quality of the dignified, understated performances here prevents the picture from tipping into cloying sentimentality.
