First saw this little girl in "Tokujo Kabachi". Her screen time was not so much in there, nevertheless I thought she's so cute and adorable, who knows now she becomes the most popular child actress. Her performance in "Mother" is so impressive.
She's just 7 years old this year, yet her achievement maybe surpass your favorite actress/actor.
