AFTER THE STORM
(May Monthly Screening)
Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Latest Masterpiece Comes to the JCCC
Gentle and melancholy yet surprisingly amusing, the latest film by celebrated Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda (Our Little Sister, Like father Like Son) focuses on Ryota (Hiroshi Abe), a failed writer, thirdrate detective, and no-luck gambler who has become separated from his wife and young son. When a typhoon strikes one night, the broken family is forced to spend the night together at the home of Ryota's mother, where the ensuing interaction — free of melodrama or forced catharsis — is tender, bittersweet, and quietly incisive, in true Kore-eda style.
A bit hit at TIFF this is one of the best films of 2016. With Kirin Kiki, Yoko Maki and Satomi Kobayashi.
