Usually the drama in episodes of the evening band last about 45 minutes. When they are in one bet or in a special edition called SP (special) and last about 90 minutes. This film is basically a special, it could very well be televised without passing the salt. The most immediate references are the many drama on cooking, Italian and not, beginning with Child , and the novel-drama-film Himitsu . New Director after making two television dramas. Many scenes of Tokyo tower and a Tokyo by night postcard, a few words of Italian and some image of Naples, all seasoned with a violin or piano music. More to say I think there is, if you do not detect the remarkable sensuality of Aibu Saki which, though not know acting, catches the eye.
