2006. Japan. Written and directed by Naoko Ogigami. With Satomi Kobayashi, Masako Motai. Seagull Diner is a delightfully low-key portrait of the culture clashes and amusing misunderstandings that ensue when three Japanese women open a restaurant in Helsinki. With its charming setting, likeable—if somewhat quirky—characters, and scrumptious-looking food, Ogigami's debut feature is an ideal companion piece to Megane. In Japanese; English subtitles. 106 min.
