19 Movies Like Flavors of Youth (2018)

The hectic and punishing way of life in the cities of China, despite the fact that they are filled with memories of times gone by, are yet fascinating. The theme of Shikioriori, which is told through three separate stories that take place in three distinct places, is the painful passage from youth into adulthood.

The fleeting moments of one’s childhood remain forever fixed, despite the fact that reality may appear to be constantly shifting. As time marches on inexorably, three distinct people investigate the resilience of relationships and the comfort of cherished memories while reflecting on the significance of a bountiful bowl of noodles, the splendour of family, and the difficulties of first love. Within the chaos of the modern world, one can see these charming stories that acknowledge the cosiness of the past and make an effort to resurrect the flavours that have been neglected since childhood.
