(OK) A little gem ahead of its time, a bus movie, kind of early japanese Buñuel's "Subida al cielo" with a great handsome bonhomme driving. There are natural and lyric moments...

Shimizu’s endearing road movie follows the long and winding route of a sweet-natured bus driver—nicknamed Mr. Thank You for his constant exclamation to pedestrians who kindly step out of his path—traveling from rural Izu to Tokyo.

"19.8. Sympaattisessa pikkuelokuvassa kohtelias bussikuski tarjoaa erinomaista asiakaspalvelua myös niille, jotka eivät matkusta linjalla. Hyvälle tuulelle saavassa elokuvassa ihmiset ovat mukavia toisilleen ja auttavat tarvittaessa. Kohtaukset, joissa bussi ajaa kohti tiellä käveleviä ihmisiä, ja sen jälkeen leikataan toiselle puolelle heitä ohituksen jälkeen, muistuttavat hyvinkin paljon videopelien random encountereita - tietenkin ilman itse taistelua, koska Mr. Thank Youssa kaikki "
