Tae, a 77-year-old widow, attempts to inject a ‘spark’ into her life and signs up with a matchmaking service in pursuit of a last chance at love. Despite the impending bad dates and the unrelenting opposition from those around her, Tae stays in search of her silver-haired knight in shining armour.
A Sparkle of Lifeis a wonderful romantic comedy by rookie filmmaker Bunji Sotoyama that will make you laugh and cry. Exploring the hopes and dreams of Japan’s aging population,the film was a huge hit in its native Japan and even received praise from Japan’s late theatre director Yukio Ninagawa, who described it as ‘a movie that makes getting old OK.’
