We fell in love with Shimizu San. It occurs from time to time when filming stories. It happened to Mirra first, shortly after they met. Maybe it was the fact that he let her stomp on the Udon noodles or when he invited us to play music and dance with his friends. It hit Daniel while he was editing, hearing the beautiful story of a man who was defying the negatives of globalization through farming good ingredients and making good noodles. We think you will fall in love too. Enjoy!
