Komome Diner (2006)

A Japanese woman opens a diner in Finland specializing in rice balls.  Ok, sounds like a Kanye tweet, but in fact, this is a gentle little movie focusing on our hero Sachie, her wish to make her eatery successful, and relationships along the way.  Not so much a foodie movie, although there is some of that; more like a nice little place to hang out for a while.  Perfect movie for your nonviolent mother-in-law.  Don't expect Bruce Willis jumping away from explosions in slow motion--ain't gonna happen here.   If I was bouncing around Finland and saw this place I would totally bop in for a cup of joe.  So enjoy.
