Movie Info

Makoto Shinozaki's genre-bending film concerns three aging World War II veterans living in modern day Japan who are wrestling demons from the past, while trying to come to terms with their rapidly approaching mortality. Ito, a charming widower, is shocked to discover that he might be falling in love; Kijima lives a solitary life, mourning the family that was taken from him during an enemy firebombing; and Heihachi is a restaurant owner who learns that his wife has terminal cancer. Entering into the mix is a cult-like group, Utopia, who trains impressionable young adults with the purpose of scamming the elderly out of their entire savings. When Kijima, Ito, and Heihachi figure out that Utopia has been working their evil on them, they use their suppressed anger to take a final stand once and for all. Equal parts romantic comedy, war drama, and thriller, {Wasurerarenu Hitobito} (Not Forgotten) is also a moving commentary on the universal topic of aging, set in a contemporary Japan that is still trying to find its post-World War II identity. ~ Kimber Myers, Rovimore

Critic Reviews for Not Forgotten

All Critics (2)

It's a cliche-addled, nonsensical bit of piffle that would rightfully have vanished into the deepest recesses of the used-DVD dollar bin if not for the fortunate casting of television's Mentalist, Simon Baker.

The plot is a tightly wound mystery that gradually reveals itself, saving most of its surprises for third-act revelations.
