Made in the still of Ozu, this modern classic by Hirokazu Kore-eda (Nobody Knows) is a family drama about grown children visiting their elderly parents, which unfolds over one summer day. The aging parents have lived in the family home for decades. Their son and daughter return for a rare family reunion, bringing their own families with them. They have gathered to commemorate the tragic death of the eldest son, who drowned in an accident fifteen years ago. Although the roomy house is as comforting and unchanging as the mother's homemade feast, everyone in the family has subtly changed.
Starring Hiroshi Abe, Kirin Kiki, Yoshio Harada and Yui Natsukawa.
