All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4)

Kore-ada has explored the father-son dynamic in his previous work, most notably Still Walking (2008) and Like Father, Like Son (2013), and brings a gentle, humanist approach to the material.

Keeps the melancholy tale of a broken family reunited briefly by a typhoon on a slow simmer until the last act, which is sprinkled with small epiphanies about our humble existence.

Echoes 2008's Still Walking in its gentle, wry wisdom.

A classic Japanese family drama of gentle persuasion and staggering simplicity from Kore-eda Hirokazu.

It may not be the most interesting question Kore-eda has ever posed in a film. But it makes a nice addition to a lovely and gentle body of work about parents and children.

A creative film that bets on minimalism, where the sweetness and bitterness in the echoes of the past are mixed. [Full review in Spanish]
