The Taste of Tea (2004): A sip of whimsy and charm.

Lately I’ve been thinking about how much I love Japanese film, and how much I miss watching strange Japanese cinematic masterpieces. Tonight I’m re-watching The Taste of Tea (2004) – a film I watched and reviewed way back in ye olden days of 2013. Here’s my vintage Film Grimoire review on this lovely film. Well worth a watch.

I find that the surrealism and humour of Japanese film tends to be in a class of its own, and The Taste of Tea (2004) is no exception to this. This charming film follows the movements of the Haruno family during a time when each of the family members is restless with a facet of their ordinary lives.
