“I liked this film a lot.  It is witty, warm but also provocative (...)  It asks if the East-West dialog is possible and if so how.  It excellently shows the problem of the “surface of things. (...) To me, I am saying this a a practitioner, this film could be a very good illustration of how East and West can communicate with each other”.

-  Bogna Dziechciaruk-Maj,
the director of Manggha, the Musuem of Japanese Art and Technology in Cracow.
