The Yokoyama family come together to celebrate the memory of their youngest son Junpei, who died fifteen years ago while rescuing a boy from drowning. Over the course of one summer day we follow the family, bound together by love as well as resentments and secrets, as new relatives become acquainted, old stories are retold, food prepared and an elegant graveside ritual takes place. It is with warmth and gentle humour that we follow the complex dynamics between the equally annoying, lovely and precious characters of the Yokoyama family, all masterfully drawn by Kore-Eda.
this film is amazing!!!i have seen it this winter in the cinema, and i was amazed, its one of the best movies i saw in a very long time!! i really really recommend it!
Loved this film not just for it's pace and story...but also I somehow found it so reassuring the Japanese have the
same family issues and dysfunctional families as we here in the West...just proves in every society throughout the
world we have more in common than possibly we realise on the surface!!
This is a hundred times better than garbage like Goemon which too many people have downloaded.
