“It’s hard to think of another filmmaker who maps the emotional landscape of divorce-torn families as precisely as Kore-eda” – The Los Angeles Times
“Sprinkled with small epiphanies about our humble existence.” – Variety
“Kore-eda finds subtle and poetic ways to show us the unfathomable hurt and incomprehensible love humans are capable of.” – Desistfilm
Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota (Hiroshi Abe) wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother (Kirin Kiki) and beautiful ex-wife (Yoko Make) seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son (Taiyo Yoshizawa) – until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.
Dir. Hirokazu Kore-eda. 117 min.
