‘An’ is a red-bean paste used to fill the pancakes sold by Sentaro in his diner. A man clearly disappointed with life, he is bemused when an old lady called Tokue not only volunteers to help him cook, but shares her secret recipe for her home-made paste…

An inside column 200



When Tokue disappears, Sentaro and a lonely schoolgirl who has befriended the old woman, try to find her. In the process, they uncover a shameful aspect of recent Japanese history.




Kawase’s film is a sweet confection about much more than simply street food…
