What a Wonderful Family! III – My Wife, My Life

In this fast-paced and whimsical comedy from the great Yoji Yamada (Twilight Samurai, Tora-san series), marital strife again visits Tokyo’s loving but mildly dysfunctional Hirata family.

The home is burgled and daughter-in-law Fumie’s secret “rainy day fund” is stolen. Husband Konosuke accuses her of siphoning cash from the housekeeping budget and brands her a thief. Fumie storms out and it soon becomes clear that she was the orchestrator of the house and all its routines. The men are hopeless and the Hirata household is soon thrown into hilarious chaos once again.

Wise, very funny and emotionally engaging, Yamada again proves to be one of Japan’s finest and most consistent filmmakers.
