Easy-going, cheerful, passionate and always ready to eat something delicious, mother Nikuko falls for the bad guys. Her happy motto: "Being ordinary is best of all." Naturally Nikuko's loud and bold spirit embarrasses 11-year-old Kikuko, her daughter. With nothing in common except living together on a boat at the port, a miracle occurs when their secret is revealed.
beautiful animation and beautiful slice of life, coming of age story that I didn't enjoy because of the constant fatphobia throughout the movie, from the first scenes till the last ones. Nikuko (yes, the character that has her name in the title) is potrayed as a caricature, her size is compared with Totoro, with an elephant...she's 68kg. She's the "funny, fat and stupid character" that has to be one dimensional so other characters can have a development in the movie
