Cinema Bento Harassment (12A) 106 minutes

“Based on a real-life blog by a real-life Kaori that rose to No. 1 on the Ameba hosting site, the opening scenes of Bento Harassment offer fresh twists on the perennial theme of inter-generational strife as well as on familiar foodie movie tropes.” – Mark Schilling, the Japan Times.

A true, universal tale – full of laughter and tears – about a single mother and her high school daughter. The girl who used to call her mommy now totally ignores her. Exasperated, the mother seeks revenge by using ‘bentos’ (home-made boxed lunches) as her ‘weapon’. Regardless of what’s going on in her own life, she never fails to make her daughter a bento lunch that embarrasses her with its sugar-coated messages of love. After three long years, the final ‘bento’ message is highly anticipated by everyone at school. This story of a mother’s love will ring true to all teens growing up and the mothers that stand beside them.
