Left a bad taste in my mouth
In "Patisserie Coin de rue", Aoi Yu stars as Natsume, a Kagoshima girl who arrives in Tokyo intending to reclaim her long lost boyfriend. At the Patisserie Coin de rue, a high-end pastry shop, she learns that her former boyfriend no longer works there. She persuades the patisserie's chef to hire her so that she may support herself while she continues her search for her lost love. Natsume's lack of skill and belligerence annoy her coworkers, but her diligent desire to improve gives hope.
At the pastry shop, she encounters food critic Tomura (Eguchi Yosuke) and learns that he once was Japan's greatest pastry chef. Tomura finds Natsume to be talentless and annoying. He discourages her from pursuing her craft. But Natsume will not be discouraged. When the patisserie's chef is injured just prior to an important engagement that might have launched the pastry shop into the big time, the chef closes the shop. Natsume, however, asks Tomura to step into the void and provide the expertise needed to fill that important order. When Tomura resists, Natsume persists ... in her typically abrasive manner.
What is most disappointing about "Patisserie Coin de rue"? Is it that the script squanders Aoi Yu's natural charm by forcing her character to lurch between being ingratiatingly sweet and obnoxiously nasty? Is it because it stuffs the plot with cliché after cliché? Is it because the film's pace shifts jarringly between glacial inaction and one major event swiftly following another and another? No, it's none of those things. What is most disappointing about this movie is that it takes a man's consuming grief over bearing responsibility for the death of his beloved daughter and trivializes it by suggesting that a nudge from a callow girl is all that he needed to get his life back on track.
